Mural Day Four: Transferring and Reference Painting

WOW - the Indy Food Co-op is so fortunate to have so many talented and dedicated volunteers helping make Pogue's Run Grocer a success.  Tonight, our mural artistic team came together for the second time this week, to complete the transfer of the mural image on the east exterior wall of the store.  Tonight they also started painting a few areas of the mural to provide some helpful reference to the volunteers who will be assisting in a "paint by numbers" style mural on Saturday, April 10.

We simply cannot thank enough these incredibly creative folks who have for two nights this week spent time making this incredible mural on the co-op building.  You simply have to drive by and check it out and I think you will be as excited as we are.  Sara Lunsford, Jacqueline and Coleman Norris, Sarah Charles, and, of course, Todd Decker, the mural design creator, have been fabulous to work with and a perfect team for our mural project.

We also have to thank Indy Food Co-op's General Manager, Greg Monzel, for working to get our store open all day and then being there to help us out all night (we worked from 6:30 - 11:00 p.m. tonight).

Many folks in the community stopped by to talk with us and find out what is going on!  And, many are excited to see a grocery store coming to East 10th Street.

Please plan to help us on April 10. We will not only be painting the mural, but also working on other projects, including cleaning all the incredible equipment donation by Cafe Patachou!

Also, thanks to NUVO Newsweekly for stopping by to capture the fun on film!

Don't miss being a part of this important community asset! Indy's only community-owned grocery store is successful only because of all the support, enthusiasm, commitment and partnerships!

Thanks you Indianapolis for embracing the Indy Food Co-op!
