For the love of dogs and an opportunity to support our community, Color Wheel was happy to help the Madison Dogs Sponsor Group. See link below for more details.
Charlie donated Benjamin Moore Arborcoat solid color stain in various colors that would best represent an outdoor scene.
This dog park mural, created by Washington-Lee High School art students, was recently installed by Arlington County at the Madison Community Canine Area (CCA), also known as Fort Ethan Allen CCA.
Under the direction of Hiromi Isobe, Department Chair, Visual Arts, Arlington Public Schools, a group of 3 students came up with the mural draft, which was approved by Arlington County. Katerina Forrest made minor changes to the size and orientation before the mural was started.
Katerina and a handful of students worked on the mural for about 3 weeks. Hiromi said she and the students talked constantly about how they could improve the mural images and it got better every day.
Phyllis Russo, Vice Chair of Madison Dogs, approached Charlie about this project a year ago. She shared the photo below and said, “The response from Arlington County, the Sponsor Group, and the park users has been very positive. We would not have had such a perfect project without the help of Color Wheel! The advice, help, and patience is truly appreciated."
Charlie responded, "Thanks for asking Color Wheel to participate in this local community project. Paint looks a whole lot better 'out of the can!'"
Madison Dogs is the association of the Madison Community Canine Area (CCA) users. For a closer look at the mural, visit Madison CCA, located next to the Madison Community Center at 3829 North Stafford Street in Arlington.
