Community Mural: All Fridays
Location: Near Junebug Sculpture 460 Main Street
A new feature at the ArtFest this year is the Community Mural. Large boards are available near the Junebug Sculpture, along with a variety of art-making materials. These five are sections of one large mural, and contain the basic outline that will help unite them when finally assembled.
Everyone who visits the ArtFest is invited to add to the mural with color and shape, an image, object, photos, etc. Work on the mural will continue throughout all the five weeks of the ArtFest. At the end, a loca artist will put the finishing touches on the mural to bring it together and make it come alive.
Everyone is encouraged to add to the mural and pend some time with it. Be bold. Add your own lovely color.
