YES, we have moved and YES we are excited about your new home for the Muramid Mural Museum and Art Center! We are still located in Oceanside in the historic area right next door to Mission San Luis Rey and the San Luis Rey Bakery. You will LOVE our new facility complete with a parking lot, private restrooms and a future outdoor theater and stage! We have been busy working on the complete renovation of the property. Our thanks for the incredible love and labor of Saul Figueroa and Aki Burkes for all the volunteer hard work! The building is sound and has great kharma and energy. Our team has loved being in the building working on murals even during the renovation. However, we are now in need of continuing funds to purchase the finishing touches - flooring, plumbing fixtures, drywall, paint, and a new ADA certified double door so we can serve ALL our patrons and participants!" Please help us finish the museum!

We also accept donations of in-kind materials if you should know of donors that are willing to provide any of these materials. Please contact [email protected] All donations large or small, in-kind or with your generous time helping with physical volunteer work...we will surely welcome and appreciate your support!

MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH!

Check out this segment from yesterday’s morning
We would like to thank the hosts and research team of this event for their hard work in making this happen!

Marilyn Huerta, Dr. Eliza Bigham, Jill Bullock, Marija Sutic, Alexis Arellano, Eulalia Da Rosa, and CSUSM Human Resources Department.
This outstanding HD497 Research Team is focusing on gaining a greater understanding of healing arts and how it can be applied in communities. Their team was hardworking and very engaging with the students making this event more than just painting but healing too.

The mural will be delivered to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. We want the families to know that students and supporters from across the country express their love and passion.

CALL FOR MARCH: Survivors of the school shooting in Florida tell Martha Raddatz they are calling for a march on Washington to demand action on gun control.

Grateful to have such an impact on Incredible People such as this beautiful Woman. Read her story.

Hace dos años viví uno de los días más especiales de mi vida.

Joanne Tawfilis ejecutiva diplomática de las Naciones Unidas y la mujer con con la carrera profesional más admirable que he conocido, me entregó un certificado de apreciación de UNESCO por mi trabajo como Miss Eco Universe en el Muramid Museum & Art Center de San Diego.

Después de escuchar las impactantes historias de su trabajo con niños alrededor del mundo en países devastados por la guerra y de conocer como dedicó su vida a reconstruir corazónes a través del arte, entendí que ese era el premio más grande. La oportunidad de conocer y trabajar con personas que nos abren los ojos a las realidades más crudas para que afrontemos los retos desde una perspectiva más humana y menos egoísta.

Hoy les comparto esta experiencia para decirles que no se trata de una corona. Se trata de hacer una diferencia con las herramientas que tenemos a nuestra disposición. #deadentrohaciaafuera Miss Costa Rica Teletica 7

Heartbreak. 💔 Another school shooting... and another Healing Mural. The Muramid Museum has responded to all the mass school shootings in our nations history starting with Sandy Hook in 2012. At first they were just rare events that we would never forget. But now as time goes on and Gun laws remain unchanged these shootings have become a frequent part of the news. Things need to change. 18 shootings in the United States as of February 14th, 2018. Even though this statistic is horrific, yes we will do yet another healing mural to send to the Florida High School. We invite anyone wishing to participate to contact us at (760) 637-2225 or [email protected] and we will call or email you back, we’ll post to let you know when, where, and other information.

Joanne Tawfilis posted an update to their GoFundMe campaign.

https://www.gofundme.com/art-miles-mural-project

To GoFundMe Supporters:
Your donations thus far have saved the Muramid Mural Museum and helped us acquire a new home that we hope to open before the end of 2017. It is critical to have a home to accommodate our ever increasing workload with educational institutions and organizations and healing murals we create in response to human and natural disasters.
Just knowing that many of us care about victims, survivors, families, neighbors and friends of disasters, like recent events in Florida, Texas, Mexico, Puerto Rico, North Carolina and Las Vegas. Shootings, Hurricanes and Earthquakes have plagued our globe this past six months and Art Miles Mural Project has rallied to send messages of hope and healing with our twenty-two year- old Art Miles Mural Project murals. These graphic messages are sent and delivered directly to towns, cities and personnel wherever these tragic events occur. The responses are phenomenal with letters from Mayors and families and private citizens stating how much our thoughtfulness has meant to them.
Call to Action:
We still need your generous donations and continuing support to help with our move to the new facility which is truly phenomenal with great kharma and healing properties located near the Old Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside. PLEASE help us heal the spirits of so many thousands of people whose hearts are hurting and to continue our outreach services to developmentally disabled individuals, veterans, juvenile justice involved teens, and children and families in need.
Your gift/donation directly to this GoFundMe account will help us procure materials needed to convert a current restroom facility to an ADA Certified one, and required by law to accommodate handicapped individuals. Donations will also help us provide canvas, paint, brushes and materials that are needed to ensure that the expressions and creativity of those who “share what’s in their hearts”, are enabled to reach out and touch others in need; our way of bringing people together in support of the Culture of Peace. Each mural basic costs are between $150-$250 depending on size so every penny raised is a huge help and ensure we are able to provide that kind of support to those who cannot afford the cost of materials. All of our staff and artists donate their time to help with this project!
Thank you for your attention and please feel free to contact me, Joanne Tawfilis at [email protected] or [email protected] with any questions you may have. Your financial or material donations (tile, flooring, wall paint, plumbing fixtures) will ensure that we are able to paint murals with at least 2,000 children and youth in the coming year and put us over our goal of $20,000 before December 31, 2017. Thank you from the Art Miles Mural Project All-Volunteer team and staff of the Muramid Mural Museum and Art Center.
