NEW MURAL!! "Corvallis- We are el corazòn of the valley"

 

This month I had the wonderful opportunity to help facilitate the collaborative design & installation of a new (temporary) mural in South Corvallis! The Nest Artist Collective, a group of 8 artists, joined together in creating " a love letter to Corvallis". We are all moms navigating the new normal during this pandemic. Our intention has been to brighten the space, boost morale and provide a visual sense of community that serves to uplift during this challenging time. 


Artists by name that contributed to this project:

Diana Rose Ryan

Caroline Moses

Courtney Marchesi

Shannon Finley

Erin Wallace

Pam Thompson

Alisha B. Whitman

Huge thanks to DevNW ( the company that owns the building and commissioned this project) for sponsoring us and to Corvallis Miller paint for supplying us with beautiful paint for the project!

I highly encourage you to drive/ walk/ bike by and have a look! This will be a great selfie spot! If you look closely you will notice the following quotes in the murals:

"Nothing can dim the light that shines from within" - Maya Angelou

"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members" - Coretta Scott King

"Alone, we can do so little, together, we can do so much" - Helen Keller
