Rise Up Central Wisconsin to hold community paint day

in Community

WAUSAU — A local program called Rise Up Central Wisconsin will hold a community paint day to help create a mural that will be permanently displayed at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

The painting will be done on canvas paper from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 14, at the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art, 309 McClellan St., Wausau. All colors are pre-mixed for a large scale paint by numbers mural. All ages and skill levels are invited to participate.

Rise Up Central Wisconsin is a community program consisting of artists, service providers, program participants and others working together on a public art project.

The art project aims to improve health outcomes for people by building stronger alliances between service providers and communities, and reducing the stigma around those in recovery to increase utilization of services in Marathon County.
