After moving to the neighborhood, Dallas artists Teresa Megahan and Joachim West were sad to see so many packs of unclaimed dogs and stray cats roaming Oak Cliff, and decided to do something they hope will help: This weekend, they’ll start painting a large mural on the side of a Bishop Arts building with the logo “Balls are for fetch. Spay and neuter your pets,” and they’re inviting others to join them.
The mural painting party takes place Saturday, June 27 at 7 p.m at 520 West Davis Street, in the parking lot of the Bishop Arts Co-Op (the building’s owner/landlords have approved the project); by then, Megahan and West will have the basic design mapped out on the building’s wall and scaffolding in place, and they say some mural painters have already offered to help. Per the invite, they are looking for any volunteers to help paint; all amateur artists and animal lovers welcome.
This event is open to the public. For more info, please go here.
