Govalle Pool Project Donation: Let’s Plan!

We have a great news! A generous anonymous donor has given $500 to our organization for the Govalle Pool Project. They have requested that the money go toward creating a piece of art as a mural that will reflect the neighborhood. We will be working with the City of Austin project managers to make sure that this can still be incorporated into their final design.

One important thing to keep in mind is that we will need your help! We want to make sure that it will reflect the history of the the area and that it comes from the residents. Please send us ideas. Something with a permanent feel that has some heart. Such as an elementary school art project, local materials, mosaic art, etc . We are very grateful that they thought of us and we hope to make them proud. Neighbors, get your thinking caps on. Spring is here, so let those ideas bloom!
