A daylong mural painting will be taking place this Friday, 8/9 at Drifting Sands Hotel in Ship Bottom. Evan Lovett, a muralist from Philly-based nonprofit Visual Urban Renewal & Transformation (VURT), will be painting an osprey and its surrounding environment on the first and second stories of the Hotel’s north efficiency wall.
Lovett’s efforts will be filmed for a documentary, potentially airing on Animal Planet, highlighting local osprey conservation efforts.
The painting will start at 10:00am at 119 East 9th Street in Ship Bottom, NJ, and should wrap up around 8pm that evening.
I’ve included a full advisory with details below. Please let me know if you can make it, thanks!
