Calling All Riverside and San Bernardino County Animal Loving Artists!

Animal Shelter Art Mural Project: Calling All Local Artists!

posted in: Call To Artists 1

It’s our goal to feature call to artists when we see them. We just came across this animal shelter art mural project and had to share! We-Reach Out has partnered with ASK, The Riverside County Department of Animal Services and Healthy Jurupa Valley and are inviting individual artists to submit applications for TWO painted mural projects at the Riverside County Department of Animal Services’ Jurupa Valley animal shelter. The selected artist(s) will work with Project Committee representatives from the Animal Solutions Konnection (ASK) Foundation, Riverside County Department of Animal Services, and Healthy Jurupa Valley to create exterior painted murals for the facility.

  1. Good day. I’m a self gifted artist. I have a BA in studio Art in 1982 from Hunter College in NYC. I have resided in Riverside,Ca. For 34 years. I raised nine children who are also talented;artistically and musically inclined. My seventh daughter is an entrepreneur out of Portland Oregon.Two granddaughters who performed in dance companies, one has won awards in dance competitions in San Diego Ca. in May of 2021. I painted a life size chalk drawing of Cesar Chavez in 2003 which hangs in the basement of The Bobby Bonds/Cesar Chavez Community Center in Riverside. I’ve dedicated my work and time to Parks and Recreation and The RUSD/ Ramona HS Special .7Ed. Department. One of my bucket list is to paint a mural or collaborate on a mural project.
