The New Mural

Last summer we put a lot of work into creating a large mural for the south side of the Boatworks. Now we're ready to begin one for the north side of the building. A design was selected, based on a "Greetings from Belmar" postcard. A grid was drawn on the blank wall. Today the process really got rolling, with the basic composition painted on the wall by Pat and Hutch, as shown in these photos they provided. The last photo shows the results.
We've gotten another donation of paint from Siperstein's (who provided all the paint for last year's mural), and we're expecting a scaffold to be installed tomorrow. Volunteers start filling in the colors and details on Wednesday. There will be a group meeting to paint on Wednesday July 30 at 8:00 am and again at 5:00 pm, weather permitting. Anyone interested in being part of the new mural should come by at those times. Bring clothes suitable for painting.
Check back on the blog for information about future meeting times for painting, as well as updates to our progress.
