CityPaint 2008!!!

Come support "CityPaint 2008" this Saturday, April 19! “CityPaint 2008” expands the Baltimore Mural Program by seeking to create 20 murals around the city this season. Six of those 20 murals will be within Waverly Main Street at the Waverly Giant supermarket at the intersection of Old York Road and 33rd Street.

Mayor Sheila Dixon will unveil “CityPaint 2008” at the Waverly Giant on Saturday, April 19 at 10:30 a.m.

Several artists, including established local muralists Gary Mullen, Michael Owen, and Danamarie Hosler, were chosen to help paint the mural. Mr. Mullen has painted the Arena Players building at 801 McCullough Street, while Mr. Owen and Ms. Hosler have painted murals at the Downtown Farmers Market under the Jones Falls Expressway.

And hey, while you're there, why not pick up a broom and help out WMS in its part of the Mayor's 9th annual Spring Cleanup!

Check out these accepted designs for the Waverly Giant mural!

Rise and Sweep!

On April 19 Waverly Main Street will be participating in the Mayor's ninth annual Spring Cleanup. The cleanup for WMS will occur along Greenmount Avenue between 28th and 35th Streets and side street blocks on both sides.

Starting at 8:00am on Saturday, merchants will be cleaning up their storefronts, and volunteers will be geared up with brooms cleaning the streets. Those involved in the cleanup will be able to take a lunch break at noon at St. John's Church for a special Barbeque. Following lunch, the cleanup will wrap up at around 1:00 p.m.

This event is sure to help beautify Waverly Main Street just in time for springtime!
