This summer, the Family Resources building on Commerce Street, across Centre Avenue from Whole Foods, will become the site of a new mural sponsored by Sprout Public Art. Local artist Brian Brown will paint the mural on the blank wall facing Penn Circle and you can be part of it.

Join Family Resources from 10:30 AM until noon on Saturday, June 12, 2010, to pose for a photograph. The artist will reference these images and will paint as many actual community members into the mural as he can. Participants will be required to sign a release. Family Resources will never release your name, and you will not be identified on the mural.

Portrait photographs will be taken in front of the Waffle Shop, at the corner of Baum Boulevard and South Highland Avenue in East Liberty. In the event of rain, photography will be taken inside the building.

For more information, call Andi Fischhoff, development director at Family Resources, 412-363-1702, ext. 1168.
