A Global Renaissance
A Bit of Background
“The worst color choice one can make is the color of neglect”
– Evan Meyer, Founder
Unfortunately, if you look around, you’ll notice that most of the human created world is bland or blighted. The reality is quite disheartening, while the opportunity is quite exciting in believing of the world we could live in. Here are a small list of opportunities (that are almost always blighted) to inspire, and for artist expression:
- Commercial walls
- Freeways ramps
- Utility/electrical/traffic signal boxes
- Public/City building in disrepair.
- Dumpsters/Trash cans
- Lamp posts
- Graffiti incidents
How You Can Make A Difference
Abbott Kinney in Venice, CA, Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY, Heidelberg Street in Detroit, MI are areas that have been transformed due to public art and organic growth and investment. In Miami, Tony Goldman is credited for turning Wynwood around through his efforts and investment. You can be the one to spearhead such an initiative through your own personal mission and investment. It is time to take this concept worldwide to communities large and small. Beautify Earth has a program to help YOU be the leader of this change in your community.
You have the opportunity to support a cause where you can see the change in front of your eyes. You have the opportunity to be the hero in your community, in your hometown, or a place sacred to your heart. Because of you, thoroughfares like Lincoln Boulevard can be an inspiring drive for the 30,000 people a day that sit in traffic driving home from work passing drab walls. Imagine the difference that color and art can have on those sitting in traffic, the families they go home to and their decisions for the future.
Each of us has the inherent ability to improve our own lives as well as those around us. By taking responsibility for our communities, we encourage others to BE the example. By joining us in making the world a better, happy, inspiring place to live, we ask… Will you be our next Tony Goldman?
