JPD Studio Sponsors The Mural Project
Friday, September 25th, 2009 | Posted by Krista Chambers | Submit Comment
JPD Studio is a proud sponsor of The Mural Project, which will paint a beautiful mural at the Montefiore Children’s Hospital September 26 and October 3. The Mural Project was founded by JPD Studio’s Creative Director Jessica Perilla in April 2007, and encourages artists to collaborate and donate their skills by creating lively, nurturing and visually stimulating murals in hospital walls to enhance healing for sick patients.
This latest project at Montefiore Children’s Hospital will take up three walls, so the project has been split into two days; Sat., Sept. 26 and Sat., Oct. 3. JPD Studio will be sponsoring and supplying all paints and brushes, but artists are free to bring their own supplies if preferred. The hospital will also be filming for a documentary about the project, so they’ll be photographing and recording a time lapse of the artists painting, as well as conducting interviews of any artists who would like to participate! The Mural Project team will need all the help they can get to complete this special project in two days, so please tell all your creative friends, and RSVP for one day or both at TheMuralProject.com if you know you can make it!
The Montefiore Children’s Hospital is located at 305 E 161st St, Bronx, NY 10451. The project starts at 9 am, and will be on the first floor, all the way to the back of the floor. Take the 4 train there, get off at 161 St./Yankee Stadium, then head southeast on E 161st St toward Gerard Ave.
We hope to see you there!
