Let’s get ready to paint!

cans of paint? check.
rollers, paint brushes, paint pans and other painting supplies? check.
block party permit? check.
Let’s see, what are we missing…Oh I know that one key, essential element: YOU!

The Mermaid on a Unicycle is ready to painted and she needs helping hands of neighbors near and far. Those who live in Reed and those who like Reed and those who like mermaids (or those who like unicycles, or chickens in baskets on a unicycles…) Whatever attracts you to our street painting is personal to you, we simply need you to come out and help and join in the FUN!

We have some painting supplies, but if you have more, please feel free to bring them (rollers, brushes, paint pans, you name it, I’m sure we can make use of it).

We will be starting the festivities of fun at 9:00 am but whenever you want to show up to lend a hand is cool. Come, bring a dish to share and mingle with your neighbors. Maybe you’ll learn something new as well, like perhaps how to build one of those little libraries you see popping up all over town (I’ve asked that someone from Village Building Convergence teach how to build those to those who attend the intersection painting).

We will provide refreshments and fun and you can help be a part of this first ever intersection painting in the Reed Neighborhood (hopefully, the first of more to come). But, you’ll be able to say: I was there for the FIRST one. And that carries great historical significance. Such memories (cue up the Barbara Streisand song…not a sound from the pavement, has moon lost her memory…I digress).

At any rate, here are the deets my peeps
