Outside the Lines – Second Annual Fundraiser and Celebration of Moving the Lives of Kids Community Mural Project



The Moving the Lives of Kids (MLK) Community Mural Project aims to empower youth through art and education. It has become one of Pittsburgh’s most anticipated art ventures. The MLK Community Mural Project brings over 100 kids together to provide them with artistic skills and bring out their talents. The art produced by the MLK Community Mural Project goes beyond city murals, of which there are now over 100; Pittsburgh youth create music, participate in fitness, learn about web design, video-production, and fashion design. The MLK Community Mural Project has used art to bring the youths of Pittsburgh together to create a stronger community.

At the end of the Moving the Lives of Kids Community Mural Project’s fall cycle, the August Wilson Center will host the second annual fundraiser, Outside the Lines. This fundraiser and celebratory event will showcase this year’s murals, raise awareness of the MLK Community Mural Project, and help the continuation of art to prosper in the city of Pittsburgh. Outside the Lines will be held on Saturday, October 24, 2009 with a VIP donor reception from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm and general admission from 8:00 pm to 12:00 am. The event will feature a new Dance Mural performance, the unveiling of the Video Mural, a silent art auction, spoken word, live musical performances and complementary food and drink. The event is for all ages. Tickets range from $20-$100 and can be purchased at www.mlkmural.com.
