It’s part of the Mural Central project, which invited proposals for various buildings. When the two groups discovered that the other would be applying, they agreed to work together. Between the two groups there will be 10 artists forming an all-star roster of muralists whose studios are located in Northeast Minneapolis. The two collaboratives view the Eastside Food Coop mural as an opportunity to coalesce many shared beliefs that come from their individual work as artists, activists and conveners of community discussion.
The mural is currently scheduled to be completed by June 6.
Eastside Food Co-op will be hosting an event featuring music, food, and entertainment on Saturday, May 21 from noon to 6 p.m.
