10 AM – 12:30 and Beyond – Paint New Mural at Questa Farmers Market

Painting of the new shipping container mural at the market site begins on Friday! Please join in painting this lovely quilted landscape ~ the mountains near Questa. The design of this mural invites all abilities and ages to paint together. A pattern will be drawn for you to fill up with color and design!

The design, by artist Rae @rubysofrae was inspired by the land and the practice of quilting that carries on in this community (and in many places). This mural seeks to bring many small pieces together to create beauty through our brushes!

12:30 Pizza Lunch provided on site for volunteers
Lunch has kindly been donated by Dominoes Pizza in Taos.
Painting and clean-up efforts may continue into the afternoon, after lunch.
