The Hyattsville CDC is seeking setup volunteers for Bursting on the Scene. Setup volunteers will be coached upon arrival on mural design, assist in loading (50 lbs items), cleaning paint supplies, and of course, painting during the day!

This is a great opportunity if you're looking to:

  • Get involved with the Gateway Arts District community.

Please join us! We're seeking 10 people on-hand for each of these shifts::

  • SET UP: Help muralists and sponsors get set-up, gather paint supplies, set up tables, chairs, tents, and signage.  We're seeking 10 people each for 2 shifts: 9:00am-11am or 11am-1pm
