Get Involved in Embrace Alabama Kids Week
Community Mural Paintings
Governor Kay Ivey has proclaimed April 11-17 as “Embrace Alabama Kids Week.” Beginning Friday, April 9, we’ll be celebrating with community paintings and events held throughout the state. As art has a way of bringing people together through curiosity and appreciation, we’re bringing together donors, community leaders, churches and others to participate in community mural paintings in order to bring awareness to the need for embracing and nurturing Alabama’s vulnerable children. The mural events will take place on the following dates with all murals being transported to Montgomery for a final unveiling on Wednesday, April 14. We hope you will safely join us outdoors for a painting or unveiling near you!
Mobile Painting: Friday, April 9 from 4-8 pm at Spot of Tea on Cathedral Square during the LODA ArtWalk
Birmingham Painting: Saturday, April 10 from 10 am – 1 pm at MAKEBhm in Avondale
Tuscaloosa Painting: Saturday, April 10 from 9am – 1 pm at the River Walk Farmers Market
Montgomery Mural Unveiling: Wednesday, April 14 from 11 – 11:30 am at 420 Clay St. in Downtown Montgomery
Volunteer to Paint a Mural
In Birmingham, Tuscaloosa and Mobile, local neighbors and volunteers will “paint by numbers” under the guidance of a local artist to complete a large mural piece. The piece will eventually travel to Montgomery where it will become part of one large mural to be unveiled before city and state officials during Embrace Alabama Kids Week, symbolizing our communities uniting to support God’s children who need it most.
