Lets make the Hive pretty and add art to the pillars!

Ward/ Signature Pillar

There are a number of reserved pillars for Ward specific themes and one for member signatures. These pillars are prominent in their ward and are to be decorated with something ward related, like yarn bombing the craft/sewing pillar.

If interested in decorating a ward pillar, create your design, submit it on the Paint a Pillar Slack channel and then allow anyone else who wishes wants to enter their design for that column has two weeks to submit their design before a vote will be held. Wardens have a veto power to say that the design doesn’t represent the ward. In which case, the artist can sign up for a different pillar if they still wish to use their design.

Free Pillars

Free pillars can be reserved and painted at any time so long as three other members approve of the design. Please be courteous of your fellow makers and only have one pillar reserved at a time.


These should be concrete and explainable to others so they have an idea of what you are thinking about. This could be as simple as saying I want to single crochet all the way around a column using yarn from the donation bin or as detailed as drawings of what you want to put up on the column.

Other Notes

Supplies are not guaranteed. If there are donations, artists are free to use them.

Remember that what is on our walls is a representation of our space that everyone can see. Please make sure that your artwork is appropriate. If in doubt, please ask for a second opinion.


This is simply the initial move in layout with some layers turned off. Sorry for the blurriness. Trying to figure out how to fix...


Below is the list of all pillars and whether they are Ward or Free. Pillars that have a wall going through them are split into sections based on the direction it faces. Note that North is the long side of the building on the side of the parking lot.
