While the High Desert Humane Society got a new sign, the Cottonwood Underpass Project (aka the CUP) ramped up south of the city. This is an art installation, a community beautification and a graffiti abatement project all in one.
The first Phase, completed over the weekend, included prep and primer. And it couldn’t have been done without the amazing help of Rose and Dave, Ronnie, David and Kristie, Dickey, the Smith Bros: Matthew and Kyle, John from United Rental, Tammy, Rayel, Jackie + Shelby Barrowdale – Gila Monster Construction, Chad @ Uptons, Joe Brown, Buz, Sheryl, Kendall, Uriel, Richard, Vince, Fernando, Samuel, Myron, Rob, and Erica. The 1st Presbyterian Church, too!
Phase 2 follows, and it’s all about the art Featuring the talents of five locally sourced, homegrown spray can muralists.
And a shout out to Ace Hardware and Ronnie Sanchez for our inside connection to everything paint!
Thank you, everyone. Our cup runneth over with gratitude.
