Campaign underway to repair “It’s Up to Us” mural

(Plain Press, December 2017)      Metro West Community Development Organization has started a fundraising campaign at http://www.ioby.org to help raise $10,335 to repair the “It’s Up to Us” mural at Clark and W. 25th Street. Funds raised will also be used to add more security and lighting around the mural.  The campaign is titled: “It’s Up To Us: Reclaiming Our Clark Avenue Mural/ www.ioby.org”. A link to the site is also available on Metro West Community Development Organization’s Facebook page.

The mural, designed by artist John Rivera-Resto, was defaced with graffiti. The painting of the mural was a massive project that involved a number of community members helping the Rivera-Resto, including neighborhood youths working during the summer months. An article by Nancy Lewis about the creation of the mural was published in the August 2014 Plain Press. To view the article, visit the Plain Press August 2014 Archive at www.plainpress.org.
