Creative Pinellas has partnered with the Lealman neighborhood CRA on a project to bring art and high-quality art experiences to the community and on using the power of art to help build community pride and energy.
Right now we plan a total of five murals to be painted on the walls of businesses and community buildings. Our first two are being painted on a warehouse building on 28thstreet, and at the Lealman Exchange.
The artists for the first two murals have already been chosen. They are Cheryl “Jujmo” Weber, and Leo Gomez. Painting is scheduled to begin in September. As soon as it starts, progress will be posted here.
Community survey results to gather interest and insight about murals in the neighborhood can be viewed here: Lealman Neighborhood Mural Project Community Suvey
