FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FROM BLOOMBERG PHILANTHROPIES
Dear Mayor Espy,
Thank you very much for submitting an application to the Bloomberg Philanthropies Asphalt Art Initiative on behalf of Clarksdale. We are delighted to let you know that your project, Walk of Art: A Community Mural Project, has been selected to receive a grant of $25,000 (United States dollars).
We received applications from cities across Canada, Mexico, and the United States, and it was inspiring to see continued enthusiasm for arts-driven tactical urbanism projects that improve street safety, revitalize public space, and engage local communities. Yours is one of 25 outstanding projects that we will be supporting, joining 65 completed or in-progress projects supported over the past three years.
Thank you for proposing such a compelling project. We look forward to working with you in the months to come!
The Asphalt Art Initiative Team
