Mural BLITZ

August 15th - September 15th

We want to bring the full palette to the perch! All the structures could use some more color and we hope your paint brush can put it on. If you are an aspiring artist, a painting pro or a wannabe, we would love for you to come and leave your mark on one of our surfaces. We will cook for you and host you all month long and tailor your visit to your needs as a creator.
