The city of Dickinson needs volunteers to assist mural artist Guillermo (Ivan) Avalos. He has started painting the murals on the underpass at the intersection of Highway 22 and Villard Street with the assistance of Manuel (Manny) Trejo. Check out photos of the artist and community volunteers painting the mural here.
Volunteers are needed Oct. 3-19, 2018. The artist will be onsite from 9 am until 6 pm. We’ve broken volunteer shifts into two-hour time slots. This is a fun project and we invite you to sign up today! Sign up sheets can be found here.
All ages are welcome, but children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult. You don’t have to be an artist to participate! Avalos has the mural sketched out and he will show you how to paint history!
The National Endowment for the Arts awarded Western Wellness a $10,000 grant with matching funds of $10,000 provided by City of Dickinson. The Change Network ND, funded through the Bush Foundation and National Arts Strategies, is providing additional support.
