CATA is $1,500 closer to its first street art mural!

Last Thursday night, CATA presented to the Redwood City Civic Cultural Commission (CCC) as part of a larger grant application of the Redwood City Parks and Arts Foundation (RWCPAF). In total, RWCPAF received $4,500 from the CCC to divide equally among its Chalk Art Festival, Secret Garden and CATA projects. RWCPAF received the second largest disbursement of funds from the CCC, out of 17 applying organizations.

The cost of street art murals, including artist commission and paint, can easily cost between $20-30 per square foot — or higher! This means that a simple 20’x10′ wall could easily require $6,000 to cover in a beautiful, professional mural.

The CCC grant is a fantastic step forward for CATA, but we still have plenty of funds to raise. Considering donating to our project on the RWCPAF website, and help us use street art to raise awareness of important issues in Redwood City and the Bay Area. Be sure to mention CATA in your donation comments!
