CAN’d Aid Foundation and Raasin in the Sun have teamed up to present a one-of-a-kind opportunity to feature your artwork on an 8 x 12 ft. mural at the Station on 1202 Chicon Street. We want to empower YOU to help beautify East Austin. Submit an original work of art that embodies the themes of sustainability | community | joy | equality | culture | kindness | clean | modern.
