Barksdale Mural Update

As Memphis weather becomes more and more wintery—and more and more unpredictable—it also gets harder to schedule outdoor volunteer events. We’ve been working with some unusually rainy weather this year to get the mural at Barksdale finished, but unfortunately we find ourselves needing to postpone once again.

On the plus side, it’s been a lot of fun to work with the fantastic artist who plans everything out for us, and this means we’ll get to keep working with Carl Moore as we finish up this great project in the New Year!

In the meantime, you can check out the first finished mural on Mclean or take a look at the progress around Barksdale. And don’t forget to see more of Carl’s work currently on display at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens. As always, we’ll keep you updated and let you know as soon as the weather is nice enough to get this project back on track! — Kristen Schebler
