Riverside’s Eastside community has a rich history of diverse residents coming together to make their neighborhoods spaces where families can gather, connect, and feel safe. Here at the Riverside Art Museum, we are proud to support an artist-in-residence program with Juan Navarro who works with residents and non-profit organizations to beautify and transform spaces throughout the Eastside, including the three murals which have already been completed.
We hope you will join us in our next project as we gather six artists to engage with the community to create murals at Arci’s Candy Riverside, at the corner of University and Park Avenue, reflective of the aspirations of local residents. When the project is completed, we invite you to join us for the Eastside ArtFest 2020—a family-friendly event to celebrate this new community mural project located at the gateway to the Eastside. We believe this pioneer project will strengthen ties between neighborhoods and uplift artists through collaboration.
We have garnered support from the California Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, and Macy’s to help fund the majority of this project. And now, we need your help.
We need $7,900 by March 30, 2020, to bring this project to fruition. If you believe in the transformative power of the arts and strengthening our local community, please consider sponsoring the murals and Eastside ArtFest 2020 today at one of the levels below.
Thank you for your consideration,
