The Welcome Wall – a mural that will cover the entire south wall of 751 Fillmore (near Broadway) and will include the word Welcome in 13 languages – will be installed by the end of July. The mural is a collaboration of Broadway Fillmore NHS, the Fillmore Corridor Neighborhood Coalition and the Albright Knox Art Gallery’s Public Art Initiative. The public has been invited to participate in painting the mural on a series of public paint days. The mural is painted on a series of parachute cloth sections, which are then patched together like wallpaper and installed on the side of the building.
