Volunteers needed for neighborhood art projects!

WalkDenver is partnering with several different neighborhoods on pedestrian-oriented art projects, and we need your help with installation! Last June, the neighborhoods of Athmar Park, Barnum, and Sunnyside won $1000 each for a neighborhood-designed walkability project by collecting the most data about sidewalks and intersections as part of the WALKscope Data Challenge.

After several months of planning and collaboration on the design, we are ready to start painting the town. Barnum community members decided on a wayfinding project for the Weir Gulch Trail to help people find their way along the disconnected trail path and access local destinations.

The Sunnyside and Athmar Park neighborhoods both chose to install intersection murals outside local elementary schools. Intersection murals can help beautify a space and also help remind drivers to be extra cautious and aware of pedestrians.

Sign up to volunteer for a three-hour shift at the following installations:

Barnum Park, Saturday, May 6
Install wayfinding signs (decals and stencils on the sidewalk) at various points along the Weir Gulch Trail.

Sunnyside: Trevista at Horace Mann, Saturday, May 13
Install an intersection mural at 41st and Navajo, right outside the elementary school.

Athmar Park: Valverde Elementary, Sunday, May 21
Install an intersection mural at Tejon and Nevada, right outside the elementary school.
