4/4/18 • Event update episode: Streetscape Painting - New Dates
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: Streetscape Painting
Event dates have changed to: 4/13 & 4/20 9-5PM | Meeting at The Workroom at 9am, 150 N. Cleveland Wichita, KS 67214.
Hey Wichita! On account of this Wichita's weather, we will be changing our "DDD Street Motif" production days to Friday April the 13th and the following Friday April the 20th, 9-5pm. These new dates reflect better weather projections and aim to ensure an overall better experience for volunteers.
We will be working together with Traffic Control Services to paint and move large stencils up and down Douglas Ave. from Washington to Hydraulic in the median and parking bump outs. The majority of what volunteers will be doing is moving the 10x12ft stencils (weighing approx. 30 lbs) as a team and oversee material management on site. TCS will be using industrial paint sprayers to paint the stencils but we will likely need to do a little touch up here and there with paint brushes.
Thank you! - Josh Tripoli
