At long last, we are finally ready to paint the wall at 926 Turquoise! The tortoise will be coming down to make room for Gloria’s Blue Bird. Gloria will get started this Friday and will be around all weekend.
Come by for a chance to meet Gloria and watch her work. Urban Art Farm will be hanging out and Schaffer Visuals will be filming the process.
Thanks again to everyone who has helped us move this project forward. This is truly a community project and we could not have got this far without your help.
Monday, October 8 ~ 4:00pm to 7:00pm

Michel Malecot, owner of The French Gourmet, needed to repaint the western wall of his restaurant. Rather than simply applying a fresh coat of paint, he has asked Gloria Muriel to develop a mural for this wall. The scaffolding is up, and she expects to start painting next week! They are working on the concept and we will update you once they decide on an idea for this space. Go Gloria!
Executive Chef and Owner, Matt Richmond, and GM Gavin Cordes have graciously opened the doors of Table 926 for an Urban Art Farm fundraiser. On Wednesday, July 11th, they will be donating a portion of their sales to support Project Site #0001. The proceeds raised from this event will support Gloria Muriel’s project (coincidentally) located at 926 Turquoise St.
Table 926′s seasonally driven menu is full of fresh, local, and most importantly, delicious food! Half off their great selection of craft beers on event night too! Check out www.table926.com to read more about the restaurant. Reservations recommended.
Our office next door will be open from 7-10pm, so stop by and say hello and learn more about the project. We hope to see you there for some great food in support of local public art!
