On May 21st, Valverde Elementary and community members, in collaboration with Athmar Park Neighborhood Organization, WalkDenver, Denver Environmental Health, and La Mano Art, will be painting an intersection mural at the intersection of W. Nevada Pl & Tejon St. The purpose of this mural is to promote neighborhood identity and a sense of place, providing a visual cue to drivers that children may be crossing the street on their way to or from school. Through community input, we have developed original artwork representing the rich history and culture of the Athmar Park neighborhood. During the mural painting, the crowd size will be up to 25 people at any given time. There will be no amplified sound or alcohol served. Food will be served to the volunteer group in the morning and the afternoon. Bathrooms and facilities will be provided by Valverde Elementary, as well as parking in the Valverde school lot.

We will have three shifts of painting:
8 am – 11 am
11 am – 2 pm
2 pm – 5 pm
