Picture Updates for "Labor of Love" Mural!

The "Labor of Love" Apopka mural is working on outlining the artwork so that the colored painting process can begin! Head artists Linda and Sarah are working with community members constantly to pump out work. Read more to see picture updates on the mural!

Linda's grandchildren and great-grandchildren have been working alongside her to contribute to the mural! A big part of "Labor of Love" is to make the mural inter-generational. We want to hear from the voices of Apopka's past, present, and future.

After meeting through mutual connections at the Zora Neale Hurston festival in Eatonville, local artist Norman has also been helping with the mural process. His work and dedication to this cause has been crucial to our success! Without the generosity of community members, we could not complete this "Labor of Love"!

The mural will feature an array of images that feature old Apopka landmarks, such as residents' homes, juke joints, playing children, and of course, plenty of farmworkers!
