Invitation to “Color Your Block” art project at Xavier

Guest blog by Molly Robertshaw

You don’t need to be an artist to make your mark on a community-wide mural coming to Xavier’s campus this Saturday, October 29th. “Color Your Block” is a collaborative, public art project led by Xavier professor Jonathan Gibson and his students that will come to life on the back of the McGrath Health & Wellness Center overlooking the NEXUS Community Garden (1714 Cleneay Ave.). From 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Norwood community members are invited to work alongside Evanston residents and Xavier students to come ‘paint a block’, or two, or three as part of this colorful mural. Participants are also welcome to help “put NEXUS to sleep” for the season during this same timeframe. We hope to complete the mural and put the garden to rest all by 1:00 p.m., so come ready to contribute what you’re able! All supplies and food will be provided to volunteers. Contact Molly at 745-3560 or with questions.
