So we are getting ready to work on a mural in the West Indy neighborhood. This project will be in partner ship with KIB. I was recently tasked with just making a general mockup to show what the idea for the mural is.

DPWords is no longer in the Murphy building. We have changed locations to 37 Place off of 25th and Keystone.
On March 6, DPwords hosted another First Friday event featuring Amelia Eskenazi (of the important Eskanazis). This event also featured a fundraising performance from the band Versaria.
