Sponsor a gallon of paint for a future community mural!
The cost of paint for our murals tends to run $250-$450, depending on the wall. When a mural is sponsored, this cost is covered (as well as our time). When we don't have a mural sponsor, we pay for the paint ourselves and volunteer our time.
So every can of sponsored paint is greatly appreciated!
-----Art We There Yet is a project to create art and music inspired by the Americas, celebrating our shared humanity and giving back to communities along the way. In addition to our art practice, we provide free community murals and arts workshops in underprivileged communities.

& Cora Rose
We are a pair of artists with the vision of understanding the world through the lens of our art.
We are in the midst of the largest art project either of us has ever taken on, Art We There Yet. We are driving 30,000 miles across North, Central, and South America aboard a school bus converted into an art and recording studio on wheels. We are creating art and music inspired by the Americas, and we are providing free arts programming in underserved communities along the way.
The goal of the project is twofold. First, to use art to highlight our shared humanity and emphasize that diversity is our greatest strength. Second, to provide valuable arts programming (murals, workshops, performances) for free in communities experiencing a lack of arts funding.
A key way we are funding the Art We There Yet project is through the sale of our music and art.
Thank you for your support!
