Pullman Park was adopted in 2013 by Groundwork Richmond, a local non-profit that develops environmental youth leaders. Since then, the organization enhanced trails for pedestrians and cyclists, built a fence, built rainwater gardens to control future storm water surges, and installed benches and bike racks. Groundwork Richmond is currently applying for funding for a larger mural about the history of the Pullman neighborhood.
The mural will be designed by neighbors and community members. It will be painted on a 480 sq feet wall to be built along one of the park’s boundaries. Its images will show the positive contributions of immigrant families living in Richmond, as envisioned by community
How Can I Help?
While the East Bay Fund for Artists has funded two thirds of the mural, we need to raise the rest. This is why Groundwork Richmond has a campaign asking for individual donations from anyone who believes in this project. Please click on the link to help us. No donation is too small!
We Need Your Ideas
Come share your ideas on Saturday, February 15, at the corner of 23rd St and Grant between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. We will have art and writing materials for you to share your immigration mural ideas with us. Come meet the artist and learn more about the Pulman Park mural. Painting will take place in the summer and is open to everyone. Sign up if you’d like to volunteer to paint!
Help us spread the word. Just copy and paste!
