Hey Neighbors! One of the things we love most about Merion Village is how artful and eclectic this community is! We’d like to show off this colorful spirit even more and showcase more art throughout our neighborhood.
Here’s the big picture:

NEW 2022 MURAL!
We need your help to make it happen!
If you like art (and who’s kidding, EVERYONE loves art), we could really use your support! In order to bring this project to life, we need to raise money. If you participated in last year’s fundraiser, THANK YOU! We raised $1,025! That’s pretty awesome, but we didn’t quite reach our goal. So, we’re picking things back up where we left off. Our new goal is $3,500. We know it’s lofty, but we’re counting on you to help us make it happen!
Please take a moment to make a contribution and help us bring more art to Merion Village! Big or small, we really appreciate it. Donating is fast, easy and every penny goes to support a local artist and this installation. ANDDDDD we’ll all get to see more art as you stroll through the neighborhood!
*If you don’t use Facebook, please contact Tom O’Gara and he’ll help find another way for you to make a donation.
We hope you’ll follow along with us on social media as we bring this project to life.
The Merion Village Mural Group
Do you love the South Side? Are you passionate about your community? Does public art make you happy? The MVA will be working with an artist to install a community-inspired mural on a local business building in Merion Village! Several artists applied to help with this project and the Summer Fundays committee is working toward selecting a partner. The selected artist will work with the committee to design a mural and plan/execute installation. We will share updates as this exciting project develops! While we are still in the planning stages, we would like to ask our community to help raise the funds necessary to install this mural. Funds raised will be used toward completing the project (purchasing supplies, paying the artist for their time, etc.) We are so excited to see this project come to life, and we thank you for helping to make the mural a reality!
