Our Garden City Placemaking Fund was created in part to give local, BIPOC, and emerging artists a jump-start in their careers, and for one of our first artists, it sure seems to be working.
In the latest installment of the Placemaking Fund’s Scaling Up! blog, Miguel Almieda says: “I have two mural installations coming up, and I am also working on pitching a mural concept. At the end of August, I am going out to Kirkland, Wash., to paint a mural in one of Google’s buildings. It’s pretty insane to think that I’ll be painting something at Google. I don’t think it’s fully sunk in yet, haha, but I just finalized the work in my iPad and can’t wait to bring it to life.”
