New Mural for the Dimond

The Dimond Improvement Association is working to create a new mural at the Peace Park/ Gateway Garden at
Lincoln Avenue and MacArthur, there is a small almond shape retainer wall across Lincoln Ave. from 7-Eleven that slopes down Lincoln toward Farmer Joe's.

Representatives from the DIA, the 22X NCPC Beautification
Action Group, and Park designer Tricia Cristopher have begun discussions with artist Kristi Holohan of ACE Arts to design and implement a mural on this wall. The communities opinion is being sought and will be factored into the mural design.

They are also looking for donations to meet the $990 project budget. 7-Eleven and Lincoln Court are being asked to donate, contributions from the community are also needed and are fully tax deductible, details are at the bottom of the page.
Below are pictures of the current site and the 2 proposed murals.

If you want more information find it on
Dimondnew.org, where you can also post comments or send them directly to DIA Chair Daniel Swafford at danielswafford@aol.com
