Project Pride SRQ representatives and volunteers this week began applying a new coat of paint to the PrideWalk street art at Five Points.
The street mural — which connects the five-corner intersection of Cocoanut Avenue, North Pineapple Avenue and Second Street — was approved around a year ago on a temporary basis. Project Pride returned to the city and had the artwork approved for a repainting on March 11. The city arts committee has been working with Project Pride.
Detroit mural artist Joey Salomon returned to Sarasota to lead a series of volunteers in painting the street once more. Project Pride SRQ co-founder Katie McCurry said the street art's design had not been changed from its original design.
