Save the "Seeing Our Voices" Mural in Germantown
MURAL IN GERMANTOWN AT RISK OF BEING ERASED!
The mural is located at Divine Beauty School 5524 Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia, PA. (on the corner of Germantown Avenue and Armat Street)
In 2008, the mural "Seeing Our Voices, Signs of Germantown" was created to capture the Deaf and hearing community in Germantown. The mural was supported by the Mural Arts Program and the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. The images shown represent the people in the neighborhood and their connections to one another. The mural has been affected by the harsh winter and is need of serious repair.
If action is not taken, the wall will be completely painted over with white paint!
The Mural Arts Program wants to repair the wall but the wall owner refuses to care and respect the mural that was created intitially with her permission and the involvement of the community.
Without the wall owner's committment to preserving the mural, the wall will be completely painted over with white paint. The hard work of the artists and most importantly the messages collected and images of the community will be erased.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO KEEP THE MURAL!
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND SPREAD THE WORD TO THE COMMUNITY!
