Community invited to help create “Love More” mural in San Carlos

in A&E/Community

The Community Foundation of San Carlos is welcoming locals to help create an outdoor environmental advocacy mural, “Love More” on Saturday, April 23 at 1379 Old County Rd. in San Carlos.

The mural project will transform a blank space with “a burst of springtime color” featuring native wildlife the day after Earth Day; it’s the vision of Design Tech High School students Lauren Wu and Annie Phillips—a duo collectively known as “Splash of Color.”

Community members are encouraged to sign-up for a time slot between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. that Saturday to paint the mural, volunteer or to come out to offer general support. “All are welcome to attend this festive day celebrating the environment and art in the burgeoning Industrial Arts District in San Carlos,” stated foundation organizers.

The family-friendly event will also feature food trucks, live music from local bands, screen painting, art activities and other community building activities.

Since 2019, the Community Foundation of San Carlos has looked to improve the lives of all who live, work, learn and play in San Carlos. Find out more about the organization here.
