31|Linwood & Troost Community Mural Project

 

Troost Market Collective's 31 Linwood & Troost Mural Project was created with the community so their voices can be heard.  Artists and community members were invited to share what the past and future of Troost looks like to them while the buildings Troost Market Collective will fill are in transition.  These murals give voice to action and community strength, highlighting the beauty and inspiration that exists in the community surrounding these buildings.  Your support will compensate the muralists for their work and their supplies. SUPPORT THE MURAL PROJECT HERE
