We don’t need to cover the myriad ways in which 2020 was a difficult year; you already know that. What we do want to focus on is mending our social fabric, and how we can bring people together again, even if – for public health reasons – we’re not quite ready to physically come together.
As with so many things, this healing starts locally, and it starts with us. The Hilltop already faced so many complex challenges requiring creative solutions and people working together – we don’t need to add to the challenges. Our theme reflects our desire for collaboration, for unity, for equality, and for working together to solve problems big and small. And for doing GOOD things. Together.
In that spirit, we want our 2021 mural to be a collaborative process from start to finish. We want to see artists working with other artists on their mural concept, and for the winning application, we want to see those same artists working together to bring their concept to life.
