New Austin mural coming to Amy’s Ice Lotions on South Congress

Before the pandemic, the South Congress Avenue Amy's Ice Creams would draw a crowd on a nice day. Amy's Ice Creams founder Amy Simmons and the Kindness Campaign founder Andra Liemandt are hoping the mural also will bring people to the spot safely during the pandemic and beyond.

Austin-primarily based nonprofit group the Kindness Campaign has a question: 

“What does kindness mean to you?”

The answers will turn into part of a group artwork mural being produced in a partnership among the Kindness Campaign HOPE Campaign, which connects artists to causes Texas Cultural Believe in and Amy’s Ice Creams.

Why Amy’s? The mural will take above the full constructing of the South Congress Avenue spot of the ice cream chain. It really is an ideal, extremely obvious placing which is viewable coming from the Capitol. This mural will sit throughout the avenue from the now-iconic “I Appreciate You So Substantially” mural at Jo’s Coffee. 

The mural masking the entire making, says Amy’s Ice Lotions founder Amy Simmons, “is going to be magnificent.” That place helps make an perception even though “it truly is this minimal small constructing in a sea of increasing even larger properties.”
