So while in the intensity of creating that work, I sat in a meeting with a friend in which we came up with an idea for a mural in a downtown Lincoln space called The Pilgrimer (http://thepilgrimer.com/). With only two weeks to First Friday art walk we decided to go forward with the mural by including the community. So starting on March 30 and all that week we invited people who came to The Pilgrimer to write their fear on the wall. Then I went in on Thursday and wrote out the words "You are not alone" all over the wall making a grid to lay down paint. Then on Friday evening the 3rd of April, during First Friday, people who visited The Pilgrimer to listen to the great music also got invited to help paint the wall. Somehow I didn't consider the scope of the project and so I went back the following Monday and Friday to continue work on the wall and will have one more day of painting this coming Friday. Though I didn't know I would be at The Pilgrimer this many days, I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the atmosphere and experiencing what goes on there each day. The space is set up to encourage makers, creatives, and artists to sell their goods as well as a space for gathering for conversation. It is also available for other events. I have enjoyed working on the mural and it will be bittersweet to finish this coming Friday. It has been exciting to give of my time and talent in support of this endeavor. If you are ever in Lincoln, NE stop in at 228 N. 12th and enjoy the atmosphere and a cold coffee toddy. I have overheard many a visitor order one. It has been a whirl wind of activity lately and I am continually overwhelmed at the opportunities God brings my way.
