You’re Invited – UKRAINE MURAL PROJECT & COMMUNITY CONCERT
Thursday, May 5 · 5 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Join us at the Alliance for the Arts for the unveiling of 20 new murals created by artists that portray their unique perspective on the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
The purpose of the Ukraine Mural Project is to recommission the vandalized murals at the Alliance for the Arts, celebrate our united artistic community, and let everyone know that Fort Myers is too great for hate!
This family friendly event features a community concert by Karribbean Groove, food, adult libations, and an interactive live paint mural.
We’d love to see you on Thursday, May 5 from 5 – 8 p.m. at the Alliance for the Arts. The event is free to attend, but a suggestion $10 donation supports this ambitious project and sustains the future of arts in southwest Florida.
