Mural Installation at 1540 Elsmere

Friends and neighbors gathered at TAP for cleaning and a mural installation at 1540 Elsmere on an unseasonably warm Fall day

The building was formerly a neighborhood party store that closed several years ago. We recently found out the building was scheduled to be demolished. Neighbors and youth have told us repeatedly during design processes that they would like more things in the community to walk to, less empty spaces and lots, and more activity.

Together we are working to clean and activate the site with the hopes that another business can move into the space in the near future. Reanimating the corner will give us more reasons to share time and space with each other. Fingers crossed!
