Austin, Texas – Two Austin nonprofits launched the Windsor Park neighborhood in northeast Austin into a world of reading – through art. Local nonprofits, BookSpring and the Jet Method of Exchange (JMOE) teamed up to fuse literacy with art at a mural unveiling on September 26.
Based on reading themes used at BookSpring, artist JET hand-painted a custom literacy-inspired mural on the side of BookSpring offices.
Located on the Blanton Elementary School campus, BookSpring unveiled the mural at a reception on Friday, September 26.
BookSpring provides reading experiences, tools, and books to children and their families so they can develop a desire to read and succeed in school and life. For more information about BookSpring and to help provide books to kids who need them most, visit www.bookspring.org.
The Jet Method of Exchange (JMOE) is an organization dedicated to changing the world with art and inspiration, one good deed at a time. Exchanging art for good deeds at events and with people all over the world, the dream arose from a committed and passionate artist to change the world with art. As the idea began to grow and expand the purpose and mission became inevitable – to catapult “Paying it forward” to a whole new level.
