Miracle Clubhouse recently partnered with Dayton artists Tiffany Clark and Leslea Hipp of The Mural Machine to continue work on the “Love You: Mental Wellness/Suicide Awareness Mural,” located on Keowee Street between First and Third streets. The mural honors those who have attempted suicide or have lost their lives. This phase of the project is being funded by Culture Works and the Montgomery County Arts and Cultural District 2020 Special Projects Grant.
Dayton-area community volunteers are invited to the next Community Workday to help paint, clean and improve the mural from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 19. The special workday is open and accessible to all. Parking is available at lots located near each end of the mural.
“We are excited to partner with The Mural Machine on this project, show our community that mental health resources are available and beautify our city,” says Trick. “We hope to bring awareness to mental health and open dialogue to end stigma. We don’t want anyone to feel alone.”
