1 of 4 finished panels designed and executed by artist Jesse Van Horne for the 40W Muralfest on August 8, 2015. Each panel measures 48"x48"
Here is one of the recently finished panels (4 total) that I designed and executed (fill-in was done by the community at the event) for the 40W Muralfest.
Amidst the fun-filled fury of activity some of the design detail was lost as people joyously filled in the cells, and then started filling in the white space (who can blame them)? In my finishing efforts, I did have to mute the color outside of the design for readability's sake, but I really dig the way it creates an abstracted background, I may use this technique for future pieces!
In short, I had a lot of fun participating in this event. It was my first Community Art event and it was a grand success!
These panels will be installed at the Lakewood Cultural Center for the next few months, so head over to check them out if you get the chance!
