Emerald Village is an affordable tiny house community being built in to provide sustainable housing to people with very low-incomes. Fourteen of the twenty-two tiny homes have been completed, and are already occupied by their first residents.
Part of the residential site is tucked behind a cafe and auto repair shop. This creates a long stretch of blank wall. The houses may be tiny (160 - 300 square feet), but this canvas is BIG (105 feet long by 12-and-a-half feet high to be precise), and we intend to cover it with a beautiful mural.
The theme for the mural was developed by the residents themselves: One Village, Many Hearts. Watch as Emerald Village residents define their mission.
We're looking to raise $5,500 to cover the costs of the mural, which we hope to be a landmark feature that will bring hope and inspiration to Emerald Village for years to come, one person at a time.
In order to design and implement the mural, we’re working with Kari Johnson, a local artist based right here in the Whiteaker neighborhood, chosen by our residents. Kari will continue to meet with the residents and develop up to three concept sketches based on their feedback.
We'll keep this page updated as the process evolves! All donors will be invited to a special event at the village when we unveil the completed mural.
