The Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. (ADP) invites the public and media to participate in its free weekend events on Saturday, August 28 and Sunday, August 29. Both events will be held rain or shine.
Details for the events follow:
The Hope Wall Mural Project Community Workshop
WHERE: Town Square Park (544 W 5th Avenue)
WHEN: Saturday, August 28; 1-hour time slots between 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
WHAT: The community is invited to help paint The Hope Wall, an original mural designed by renowned Alaska artist Steve Gordon. Like a giant paint-by-number project, four-foot square sections of mural fabric will be painted at stations supervised by experienced artists. No artistic experience is necessary – participants will be provided with all the guidance and tools needed to paint the mural.
Later in September, the mural will be hung on the side of the Hafling Building on the corner of 7th Avenue and E Street.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged but not required at bit.ly/37yy5k3.

The event is a unique collaboration with local makers, artisans, growers, and downtown vendors curated to boost the local economy and bring folks back to our city center.
