FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 1st, 2017

Appleton, WI – The community is invited to participate in Harbor House’s Building Hope from the Pieces – Community Art Event on Saturday, November 4, 2017. The events will be from 2:00 – 4:30 pm at the College Ave. Parklet next to Copper Rock Coffee, 218 College Ave., Appleton, WI.

Harbor House’s Building Hope Campaign was launched in 2016, since Harbor House has reached their $4M building goal and is now looking to our community to help “Bring Life to the Expansion.” Harbor House serves over 1,600 individuals and children every year whose lives have been affected by domestic violence. The Building Hope from the Pieces mural highlights the need of everyone in our community to step up to end to domestic violence.

The event will feature a full hot chocolate bar, music, snacks, and the opportunity to be a part of a mural that will be on display in Harbor House’s future front lobby, which is a part of the Building Hope Campaign. The mural is being created by local artist, Irineo Medina, a previous featured artist at Bizarre After Dark and other local events. Irineo has a vision for the mural and needs help from the community to make it a complete work of art.

“As soon I was connected with the Harbor House I was instantly drawn to anything that our collaboration could produce. Shelters like Harbor House have kept safe members of my family as well as friends families. To be able to partner with such a great organization and create some art that will bring positivity, love and hope to all visitors is an amazing feeling. I am looking forward to what comes next,” Medina said.

People of all ages and artistic backgrounds are encouraged to attend! There is no cost to attend.
