RiseUP has been leading the way across Connecticut to help transform our streets into places where people can find inspiration and happiness. Hear directly from some of the artists making it happen:

We are leading an initiative in the Parkville neighborhood of Hartford to bring over 50,000 square feet of murals across the district. Dubbed, Parkville Paints Project (PPP), the murals will bring vibrancy, color and attraction to the Parkville neighborhood and really cement it as the Innovative and Creative Capital of the state. www.parkvillepaints.com
One of the primary missions of RiseUP is to cultivate a creative community of Connecticut-based artists and locally based artists. With this type of investment, we can help create living wage and livable working opportunities for artists in this community, and it can help transform their lives as much as they’re helping to change other lives.
We started a GoFundMe page to for supporters to donate: https://gofund.me/20390ba2.
We’ve raised $11,450 to create public art in Parkville. Our goal is $500,000!
Parkville Paints Project has the opportunity to transform and redefine the Parkville neighborhood for decades to come, and it will happen with support from individuals like you. This type of project will bring the community together, bring artists together, and bring businesses together to really transform something in a GRASSROOTS way.
