Raleigh Arts sought ideas to bring art into neighborhoods throughout the city. I wanted to encourage the community to engage with art and invite viewers to become the artist. 

Each installation is like a life-sized coloring book on the sidewalk. Empty areas encourage people to draw over and fill in the lines. The result is a more colorful artwork that transforms with each artist. The murals renew with rain showers allowing continued engagement overtime.

A small supply house at each mural enables anyone interact with it. In 2021, the newest installations feature bilingual English-Spanish signage. Visit a Make Your Mark installation.
