Make Your Mark Around Raleigh With Interactive Murals

A Neighborhood Art Funds Project by Anna Totten & deft and level

Make Your Mark is a series of interactive sidewalk murals in neighborhoods and parks throughout Raleigh. Much like a life-sized coloring sheet, the murals' empty areas encourage people to draw over and in-between the lines using the free supplies available in the small supply houses positioned at each installation site. The result is a more colorful piece of art that transforms with each person who interacts with it. The mural renews with rain showers allowing continued interaction over time.

This project was created by artist Anna Totten and carpentry business deft and level with support from Raleigh Arts and Neighborhood Art Funds.
