This year marks our twentieth anniversary of celebrating the arts in the Big Bend Region. The ARTWALK Board of Directors would like to give back to our wonderful community with a visual gift of art, a mural. A mural project that is relevant to our area, one that generates community involvement and awareness, that will be beneficial for area artists, students, locals and tourists, a beautification of our downtown.
Our Mural in a Weekend Project will take place during the upcoming Viva Big Bend Music Festival this July 25-28th. We have commissioned Stylle Read to be the aficionado in charge of the weekend mural project. He will design, transfer the image, mix paint, direct volunteers and fill in the blanks! The south wall of the Printco building is our mural project location, a wall that has a high rate of visual impact. We will have bleachers for onlookers and a resting place for the volunteer students and artists that will help “fill in” the lines.
Our concept is a Mexican Calendar top that promotes an understanding of the life, culture and history of this part of Texas. The mural will depict the hard working people of the Big Bend; it will highlight the social, cultural and even the natural and ecological richness of our region. We have decided to use a recognizable old Mexican Calendar top and add our own regional landmarks to help tell the story of our rich Mexican cultural heritage.
We need your help! We would like to ask you for your support to help with this immense project. Please consider a tax deductable donation of $500 that will help us raise the funds necessary to complete our project. For your $500 you get to pick a date on the July 2013 calendar and your name will be painted on that date on the mural as well as be printed on our 2014 Artwalk calendar. It is a great opportunity to show your support for Alpine and public art.
