A massive marriage equality mural is going up on George's St tonight

Artist Joe Caslin has a big job ahead.

STREET ARTIST JOE Caslin has big plans for the large expanse of wall above Rick’s Burgers at the Dame St/George’s St junction in Dublin city tonight.

This sought after patch of wall:

| V O L U N T E E R S | 1. Anyone out there with a talent for filming and a camera available this Friday night....all night! 2. If you are a film editor and are willing to get involved Please throw me a private msg. #Dublin #Volunteers #VoteYes #Equality Source: joecaslin

Will be emblazoned with a huge representation of this image:

| Y E S E Q U A L I T Y | A2 limited edition prints just out of the printing press. These will be on sale over the weekend. Drop by pick one up, have a chat to any of the crew as we install the larger drawing. #yesequality #VoteYes #Dublin #drawing #illustration #streetart Source: joecaslin

Caslin’s work has already featured around the country, like this piece in Limerick:

And this piece in Galway:

Volunteers are being drafted in to help manage the crowds on the footpaths around the installation area, while the event – which is expected to take all night – will also be filmed.

Thanks to @sir_jody for the heads up.
