Notice of Review of Public Art Mural Application for:

4906 NE 6th Avenue

The purposed mural at 4906 NE 6th Avenue is in the King School Park, and has been designed through listening sessions, suggestions and ideas from the community, King School students, parents, community members, and the neighborhood association. The mural design brings the vibrancy of Martin Luther King’s strength as a meeting point for diversity. The mural will show the strength of our differences and our interdependence.

Unapproved Mural to be Fined by City, Petition of Support Circulating

Last April the Union Market at corner of Martin Luther King Jr. and Failing was repeatedly hit by taggers. As an aesthetically pleasing alternative, a mural was painted on a void green wall. The owners are now threatened with high civil penalties and monthly enforcement fees until they paint it over. If you like art in your neighborhood, stop by the Union Market 3837 NE MLK Jr Blvd and sign the petition (over 60 neighbors already did over the last two days.) Keep art in our lives.

Friends of Last Thursday to make changes to event

Changes in store for Last Thursday next year as recently released by FOLT:

New For Next Year:

Friends of Last Thursday has been working diligently to pay for the costs of the event and to minimize the impacts of 20,000 visitors to our district. We have come to realize that the only way to keep the event sustainable is to implement changes for nest year.

WHAT CHANGES?

ALL VENDORS WILL BE REQUIRED TO SIGN UP TO VEND.
While it will remain FREE for all artists, crafters, creatives, musicians and performers, all other vendors will be charged a fee. This includes food vendors carrying a temporary or restaurant food license. This will give accountability to all vendors and repeat offenders will not be allowed to vend at Last Thursday.

LAST THURSDAY WILL END EARLIER.
One big problem is underage drinkers and the after hour violence from youth gangs.

Saxophonist and songwriter Patrick Lamb will provide the music. His focus as a songwriter and performing artist is “Old School“ R&B, Soul. He combines the influences of Funk, Soul, R&B, and a flavor of Jazz to create his own unique sound as a performer and a songwriter. As a son of a teacher, Patrick understands the need to raise consciousness about the loss of funding for the arts in public schools.
