Volunteers needed for new Hillcrest LGBT art project.
The founder of San Diego LGBT Visitor's Center, Eddie Reynoso announced this week a new project coming to Hillcrest; the creation of Equality Business Alliance’s San Diego LGBTQ Legacy Walk.
Reynoso describes it as, "An interactive outdoor exhibit that features up to 60 plaques documenting our community and nation’s LGBTQ history."
As a part of that project Reynoso says “The Legacy Wall,” a traveling, interactive LGBTQ history exhibit will make a stop in Hillcrest next month.
He says the new storefront could use the community's help. The space, located at 5th & University Avenues, needs volunteers to help with clean up, some repairs and other tasks to make the spot ready to represent what Hillcrest is all about.
"We have some light painting to do, we need to install lighting, remove graffiti off the floors, and clean, clean, clean. We also have one piece of Pergo flooring that needs to be repaired. Along with some ceiling panels and other minor things."
Eddie says the building will open in a little over a week and could use an artistic touch. "I am also looking for additional artists to display and sell their art," he said.
Since he was the victim of a hit and run, Eddie says he's limited to what he can do, so he must rely on volunteers to beautify the property. There is still a lot of work to do, he adds.
"Please private message me or call 619-432-LGBT if you are interested in helping. We will have crews in Hillcrest everyday from 10 am-6 pm through next week."
Donations of cleaning supplies are also appreciated he said.
More information on the exhibit and how you can donate to their overall mission will be released within the coming days.
