Mural in Remembrance of Phil Wheeles in Downtown Frederick, MD

This petition had 353 supporters


Phil Wheeles passed away unexpectedly last November at the young age of 37, leaving behind a wife and three girls as well as many dear friends and family.  Phil was an integral part of Downtown Frederick's vibrant music scene.  In addition to playing local venues, he could be seen on any given day, busking in his favorite spot near the corner of Market and Church Streets. It is our hope to help keep his memory alive by having a memorial mural created near his favorite spot. We believe that such a mural would not only provide a meaningful way for his family and friends, and especially his young daughters to remember him, but will enrich and benefit Frederick's thriving art scene in a similar fashion to some of the other murals that can be found around town.  We have a challenge ahead of us that involves gaining the permission of the building owners and tenants, as well as the City of Frederick, MD and the Frederick Historic Preservation Commission. The support of the community is integral to making this a success. Please show your support by signing the petition and sharing with others.
