We have scheduled an installation of the next Pieces of Peace mural. The mural will be located on the outdoor walls of the Andre Cafe Acoustique at 5th and Edgemont Streets in Chester. There will be an installation party with live music and a kids art activity on Sunday, April 22nd, 3-6pm. (rain date: Sunday April 29th, 3-6pm). The mural will be a collage of quilt pieces created on MLK Day.

We also dedicated the first Pieces of Peace mural to the late Dr. Alonzo Cavin, who was perhaps the greatest champion of the local legacy of Dr. King. The Honorable Nathaniel Nichols was on hand to speak about Dr. Cavin and his great gift of service to the community.

The second Pieces of Peace mural is planned for two walls at the Ruth L. Bennett Homes Development. The walls are visible from Interstate 95, and will be viewed by thousands of travelers everyday. It's an excellent opportunity to share stories of Chester with folks passing by. A design is currently being developed and a community paint day is scheduled for the Martin Luther King Day of Service activities in Chester on January 16, 2012 in Latham Hall at Widener University. More info to follow. . .

Then we Painted. We used an organic process with lots of freedom to create raw materials for our first quilt collage mural, which will be at the YWCA. At the next event we'll create quilt patches from the raw materials.
