Painting a difference

Concrete Couch and volunteers paint murals and clean up Middle Shooks Run Park as part of the Summer community Art and Mural Program.

Concrete Couch interns Jantzen Peake and Austin Howlett help paint a mural around some graffiti in Middle Shooks Run Park Wednesday, July 2, 2014 as part of the nonprofit's Art in the Parks: Murals and Maintenance, one of the week-long project as part of the Summer Community Art and Mural Program. The artists decided to incorporate art into the existing words on the wall rather than cover them up. The next SCAMP project will be creating mosaic lamp posts in Bancroft Park July 14-18.
