I would like to thank so many individuals, groups and organizations who have seen the value of the “Put a lid on it” projects.  The last mural that I oversaw the creation of was the VanGogh mural located on the side of Red Brick Gallery in Martinsburg, WV.  That was created just over a year ago and I am pleased that people are still motivated to collect the lids for the purpose of upcycling and creating works of art to beautify our community.

I just wanted to put a thank you out there especially to Tomahawk Presbyterian Church in Berkeley County, WV for working together to save lids.

I will let everyone know when I start another one.

Currently Mussleman High School in Inwood West Virginia is collecting lids for two murals (Masterpiece Art Kits http://www.masterpieceartkits.com) that they are going to work on starting January 2011 for installation in the cafeteria.

Last night two Martinsburg residents began working on the new Van Gogh mural that is scheduled for installation on the exterior wall at Red Brick Gallery on King Street in Historic Martinsburg.  I am very pleased with the outcome of this first work session and can already see Van Gogh’s coat coming to life with a variety of plastic bottle lids of differing sizes, shapes and colors!  WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS.  If you have a

On Monday May 5th 2009 the Historic Commission of Martinsburg made a good decision to approved the Put A Lid On It project  scheduled to go up in July on King Street.  This approval alone is one small step for Heatwole’s art advocacy, and recycling project, and one giant step for Martinsburg and Martinsburg ‘s tourism and the arts.
