Check out the mural across from Werthan Lofts. For the last three to four months, a landmark neighborhood project on 8th Ave N in Germantown has been taking place. Created by artists, painted by neighbors, volunteers, children from the community, Werthan residents, the list goes on… If you look at it up close, it resembles a child’s paint-by-numbers, with paint sloshing outside the lines. Look at it with just a little distance, it looks like art. Look at it through a social lens, and it is truly artistic, because of the community which created.
The mural was entered into the Mayor’s Celebrate Nashville neighborhood project competition and was one of the winners of a grant. We are hoping to extend the mural down a side street using the grant, but we will need additional funding. Would you like to contribute to the Village Fund to help us make this happen? Let me know.
