Customize MakeICT-Possible new special committee

I’ve been thinking about starting a special committee in charge of the aesthetic properties of the Makerspace in order to give our new building personality and have a greater visual advertisement of what we do here. We would be in charge of either designing and painting murals for the hallway or finding the right people to do so, developing the large sign by the road and making sure its permitted, making creative signage for the classroom and area doors, help create gallery displays for the areas and over all making our space inviting and fun. Anyone else have any interest in helping with something like this?

Absolutely, I’d be happy to be apart of this committee.

I’d like to see several types of little free libraries outside one each for books, art supplies/maker kits, and non-perishable foods.

That sounds like a cool idea. It would be a fun way connect to the neighborhood.

Can an @IT person move this thread to the general section? Pretty please. Maybe then we would have more interest.

I checked and it is in general.

I would love to put together some stained glass windows for the space

Count me in Anna what ever you need sounds fun.

We need something cool to fill the holes in the hallways.
Signs have to be made by official sign companies in Wichita. We need to be careful of city rules on that.

I would be happy to help in anyway I can… but I do have a lot of bandwidth going elsewhere… so count me in at the occasional member level :slight_smile:

I’ve read through the ordinance regarding signs and they do not have to be made by official sign companies, they just have to be permitted and follow a certain criteria.

Talk to David. We looked at making signs at the old place… and wound up hiring a company to make them. (He might be able to help with detail on how that went down.)

Wonder if its easier to get a permit for an art installation. Instead of a sign we just have a huge sculpture of the logo

That’s what I want to see.
