Project Inspire 2012

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

This weekend, MMAP traveled to San Jose to paint at Veggielution for NVIDIA’s annual Project Inspire. This was MMAP’s sixth year partnering with NVIDIA to produce an exquisite mural for the local community. Located right below the 280 and 680 intersection, Veggielution is a community farm with a mission to empower youth and adults from diverse backgrounds to create a sustainable food system.

The 28’ X 8’ mural, designed collaboratively by MMAP artist Sarah Woodward and NVIDIA engineer Randy Reynolds, reflects the mission of Veggielution as well as the vibrancy and richness that comes with community building, diversity and sustainability. The mural will be installed on Veggielution’s new outdoor kitchen.

True teamwork was in action all weekend as the MMAP staff worked with NVIDIA volunteers under the shade of the greenhouse. The forty NVIDIA volunteers did an amazing job putting their artistic skills to work and quickly took to painting the opposite colors and layers of the mural. The MMAP staff all enjoyed the incredible opportunity to collaborate with creative minds in a new and different realm.

The mural highlights were completed on Monday with MMAP’s all-star team: Sarah Woodward, Scape Martinez, Laura Nagle and Yetunde Olagbaju. Please look at our NVIDIA 2012 album on Facebook for more photos.

Final mural design. Great job to all the volunteers!

Thank you to NVIDIA and Veggielution staff and volunteers for welcoming MMAP to another successful Project Inspire!
