Lanesboro Community Mural Brainstorming Meeting

Our friends at Lanesboro Arts and Commonweal Theatre invite you to participate in a Community Brainstorming Session for a “Theatre District” mural on the south side of Manion Law Firm. The idea generating meeting will take place at the Commonweal Theatre on Wednesday, May 1 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The mural is designed to engage volunteers of all ages in the brainstorming and creation process as well as, create a sense of community pride, and build collaborative efforts to beautify the community.
Lanesboro Arts and Commonweal Theatre have commissioned artist Erik Pearson to take the community’s ideas created during the May 1 meeting and make a cohesive design. That design will then be presented to Lanesboro Heritage Preservation Commission, the Lanesboro Planning and Zoning Commission and other community stakeholders. The organizations are aiming for Pearson and community members to collaboratively paint and create the mural sometime during the summer of 2019.
If you are interested but cannot attend the meeting, please send ideas for the mural to Kara Maloney at Lanesboro Arts. These can be written ideas or drawings. Come be part of this exciting downtown revitalization project!
