Our newspaper, Bradenton Herald, spotlighted this building last week. The article filled me with hope for our world that seems to be so full of bad things happening. Of course you know the MadSnapper raced down there to see and SNAP!
The article started with these words.
Where can one find a mermaid, a fisherman and a bird carrying a guitar?
In Bradenton, the answer is on the back walls of the Hope Chest Thrift Store.
Hope Chest is part of Hope Family Services, which serves Women and Children in abusive situations.
The four walls were painted last month by 12 artists who donated their time to transform the building into a colorful mural featuring a musical, cultural, riverfront theme said Miriam Valverde writer for the Bradenton Herald
"It's 2,200 square feet of awesome," said Hector Ferran, coordinator of the Ninth Avenue Mural Project and owner of VMI Media Group. "It's not all about graffiti, it's just art Miriam Valverde
I say Bravo to the City of Bradenton for approving this and also Bravo and Kudos to the Artist that donated their time and efforts.
