Free Mural Workshop Oct. 1-7

Date: 
10/01/2017 - 1:00pm - 10/07/2017 - 4:00pm
Location: 
Floral Ave Park JC

The Department of Public Art (DPA) will sponsor the 4th Mural Fest at Floral Ave. Park in Johnson City on Saturday October 7th from 11-4 pm. The Village of Johnson City has given permission to paint murals on several structures at Floral Ave. Park and there will be several activities for children and adults. "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.”

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. 1st.

All Workshops are free. RSVP to register your interest to DeptofPublicArt@gmail.com.
