The PATH to UNITY Mural Project
What does the word 'UNITY' mean to you? Why is it important?
Situated on the 17.5 x 9 foot outdoor wall space of ALMA Kitchen on Mack Ave. in Grosse Pointe Park, a mural space is nearing the stage one process and entering stage two. Gary Mui, one of the partners of ALMA, had an idea to add a mural on the side of his business that would help unite our local communities and hopefully bring some positivity and inspiration to those that visit and pass by.
Guinness World Record maze artist, and Grosse Pointe Park resident, Michelle Boggess-Nunley accepted the challenge of creating such an important project and is now reaching out to ask the community, especially our area youth, what they'd like to see inside of the project symbolizing love and unity.
"This project is much bigger than ALMA's, it's for all of us," said Gary when Michelle asked what his vision was for the mural.
The 3-D 'maze' mural will feature many of our local landmarks and city roads between Grosse Pointe Park and Downtown Detroit, starting at Alma Kitchen and ending at the Renaissance Center, where 'UNITY' is graffitied along the end wall. The maze will also consist of words, symbols and short phrases that tie into the theme of unity, such as peace and love, which will be painted in different languages inside of the murals roads and buildings.
Are there any places you'd like to see go inside of the maze? Want to get involved? Let us know!
