The Southside Main Street Project, which does good things for the lately effervescent Main Street neighborhood south of Interstate 630, is raising money to paint a mural on the long, blank side of the United Systems of Arkansas building that faces Main Street south of 12th, across from Community Bakery. 

Carol Worley of SoMa says more than $1,100 has been raised in a week, and $1,500 has been pledged. That $2,600 is still short $4,400 to get the mural painted. You can contribute to the project through the crowd-funding website GoFundMe (link to project here) or by sending a check to Southside Main Street Project Inc. via Worley at 1318 S. Main St., 72202. Donations are tax deductible.
