Getting the Word Out

On June 21, 2011, in Uncategorized, by Jack Gieseking

Milena Higgins helped us to get her neighbors involved in the Make [Y]Our Mark project by holding a neighborhood gathering at one of our evening “tile signing” events at the Vadnais Heights Commons.





It was so much fun to have them all here painting together and coming up with some very creative tiles.








Best Friends Nicole and Leah each painted one side of a heart on their tiles.


I look forward to finding a great place to install these tiles in the community mosaic.

Do you have any other great ideas about how we can get the word out about this art project in the community? Please leave a comment, I would love to hear your suggestions.

    Everyone in our group had a lot of fun painting our tiles. In fact, we had so much fun, we kept going back for more tiles to paint. It was great to catch up with neighbors, to meet the Mayor of Vadnais Heights, Susan Banovetz, and to talk to Carly the artist who is bringing this project to life. If you haven’t painted your tile(s) yet, I encourage you to bring your family, your neighbors, or your friends and have some creative fun. We can’t wait to see the finished mural, Carly!
