BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Local group Thee Next Steps Bakersfield is looking for artists to create a mural in honor of 13-year-old Patricia Alatorre. The group wants to use this project to officially recognize Alatorre as “Bakersfield’s Daughter.”
Thee Next Steps organizers say they originally wanted the project to be a surprise for the Alatorre family, but with their blessing, are now sharing the project with the community.
They are seeking professional mural painters willing to donate their time or offer a fair price. Donations such as paint, paintbrushes, and any other supplies are also welcome.
Thee Next Steps Founder Mo Ali says they have a location in mind for the mural but are open to other locations if anyone would like to donate their property or wall.
If you are interested in being a part of the mural project or would like to donate supplies, you can contact Thee Next Steps Bakersfield via email at TheeNextStep@outlook.com.
You can also contact Thee Next Steps Bakersfield Founder Mo Ali by phone at 202-600-6623 if you’d like to learn more about the group and project they are working on.
