Street Artist Norm Maxwell to Paint a Mural for The Teen Project
Brilliant Colors Chosen from Dunn-Edwards Paints’ New Palette
WHAT: A vibrant mural will come to life in one day as street artist Norm "Nomzee" Maxwell creates a 12 x 8-foot urban-inspired artwork at the Dwell on Design show in Los Angeles. He will use bright colors selected from the new Then, Now & Forever color palette by Dunn- Edwards Paint. The finished piece will be donated to Freehab for its Life Transformation Center in Sun Valley. Both are part of The Teen Project's efforts to serve vulnerable homeless and addicted youth.
WHEN: Saturday, May 30, 2015. 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. – during the show so attendees can watch the artist make his magic. There will be a brief on-site ceremony at 2 p.m. to highlight the mural and make the donation to The Teen Project/Freehab.
