Interactive Mural Project Now in Roberts Park
Project was created by artist Anna Totten and carpentry business deft and level
Likened to a “life-sized coloring sheet,” the “Make Your Mark” series brings interactive sidewalk murals to spots around Raleigh. The project was created by local artist Anna Totten and carpentry business deft and level. (It’s supported by Raleigh Arts and Neighborhood Art Funds.) Small supply houses are erected on-site with mural supplies to “fill in the lines” on the sidewalk.
Roberts Park (1300 E. Martin St.) is the latest location to get a “Make Your Mark” project. The park also has a playground, tennis court, basketball court, and picnic shelters. The project is also ongoing at Worthdale Park (1001 Cooper Rd.). Raleigh arts says rain showers give the chance for new interactions: “No mural will be the same as each day there is a possibility for a new slate with new people contributing to the artwork!” it says.
The group also says to stay tuned for more installation sites that will pop up across the area, as well as “park-coordinated events.” You can read more about the ongoing program here.
Totten is known for other community art projects, as well as writing and illustrating stories, cards, and design for varying brands. Check out more of her work here.
