Another paint day slated in Frankford

Frank­ford res­id­ents can have a brush with art on Thursday, Nov. 8, at St. Mark’s Church, 4442 Frank­ford Ave.

The city’s Mur­al Arts pro­gram is in­vit­ing res­id­ents to help artist Cesar Viver­os paint the fi­nal parts of a mur­al that will be in­stalled at Kens­ing­ton and Frank­ford av­en­ues later in Novem­ber. Par­ti­cipants can also view “Trans­form­a­tion 19124,” an art ex­hib­it, from 5 to 8 p.m. The ex­hib­i­tion is sponsored by Fly­ing Kite Me­dia.

Viver­os has in­stalled two oth­er mur­als in the “Ima­gin­ing Frankord” series at Kens­ing­ton and Frank­ford. Neigh­bor­hood res­id­ents have already taken part in two “paint days” in Au­gust. The mur­als aren’t painted dir­ectly onto the walls, but on cloth that is af­fixed to the walls. 

In the spring, a fourth mur­al is slated to go up a few blocks north on Frank­ford Av­en­ue, fa­cing St. Mark’s.

For more in­form­a­tion, con­tact pro­ject man­ager Ne­tanel Por­ti­er at 215-685-0725. ••
