This year Mural Fest will offer even more community engagement with art, guided by local artists. This year DPA will sponsor a mural workshop starting Sunday Oct. 1st and continuing through Mural Fest Oct. 7th for community members. The workshop will show participants how to plan a mural, including gridding the design, prepping the space, and then painting it throughout the week and finishing 5 murals at Mural Fest. Another workshop will teach people how to use camera phones to document community events, also starting on Oct. 7th. Children will have an entire Box City to paint and decorate as well as cardboard animals, and mask making for small children to paint and play with. The Upcycling Cardboard Workshop to created cardboard playhouses, animals and masks on Sat. Sept 16th from 12-4 pm at the Bridge Community Center 143 Baldwin St. in JC.  At the same time and place Andrew Smith demonstrated the basics of screen printing and screened  Mural Fest t-shirts.  All workshops are free.

Similarly, DPA is partnering with Southern Tier Solar Works to create solar lanterns for neighbors: At Mural Fest children and adults can build their own solar lantern.

The all volunteer DPA needs funds to carry out its ambitious mural painting and community engagement. Please donate at GoFundMe.com/MuralFest2017. Even small amounts will help us!

Mural Fest 2017 at Floral Ave. Park

Public Art Workshops Mural Fest 2017 at Floral Ave. Park JC

October 7th, 2017 11 am – 4 pm

This year Mural Fest will offer even more community engagement with art, guided by artists. The Dept of Public has permission to paint murals on several structures at Floral Ave. Park in Johnson City. This year DPA will create workshops with community members led by experienced artists to plan a mural, including choosing a theme, gridding the design, choosing colors, prepping the space, and then painting it at Mural Fest. Similarly, DPA is partnering with Southern Tier Solar Works to create solar lanterns for neighbors: the workshop would come up with designs that use upcycled materials, learn how to assemble the solar lights, and gather materials for a table at Mural Fest where people could build their own solar lantern. Another idea is to create either a Box City or cardboard animals for small children to paint and play with at the previous Mural Fest at Cheri Lindsey Park.

"Leaving behind permanent murals is important," said Peg Johnston of DPA, "and just as important is engaging people in the process of creating art in public places. We are grateful to the Village of Johnson City for the opportunity to paint several structures at Floral Ave. Park."
