Last February, The People’s Perk held a Kickstarter campaign for a mural inside the coffee house. The campaign was successful, the mural has been painted, and on Sunday the Perk will hold a celebration to unveil the work. Triad City Beat has the details in this week’s issue. The mural was created by Terri Jones and Gloria Williams of the Greensboro Mural Project. The idea:
“Too often, important people — particularly women, trans women, and women/trans women of color — who’ve fought for social justice, equality and unity, are forgotten in mainstream historical accounts.
“In celebration of Women’s History Month, The People’s Perk, a locally-owned, neighborhood coffee/retail shop in Greensboro, NC, which encourages creative expression in all people, is partnering with the Greensboro Mural Project (GSO Mural Project), a Greensboro-based grassroots, arts-centered organization, to create a special mural entitled ‘Wonderful Women and Fabulous Femmes.’”
The event will be held Sunday, July 9, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. If you don’t know the way, the Perk is at 551 S. Mendenhall Street, near the intersection with Spring Garden Street.
