Description

This is one of four site locations suggested for Open Walls NHV, an outdoor exhibition of murals throughout Downtown made possible by collaboration between private property owners and local artists and volunteers.

Here's more about the project from their application to http://CouldBeFund.com

"Town Green District would like to sponsor Open Walls NHV, an outdoor exhibition of murals throughout Downtown made possible by collaboration between private property owners and local artists and volunteers. The mural project will transform four nondescript walls into colorful, original artworks, which will help redefine the area and stimulate civic pride. The selected walls are highly visible to both pedestrians and vehicular traffic, and once transformed by paint, the murals will encourage people to pause and appreciate the displayed local talent. With the combined seed funding from Town Green District and ECIC, a call for proposals from illustrators, painters, and designers can be launched, and community volunteers corralled to create public art that will enhance the cultural and visual vibrancy of the Downtown business district."

"We have identified four exposed walls that are highly visible in Downtown. Once the murals are finished, public art will face those travelling by car and foot on George Street, Chapel Street, Court Street, and Audubon Street. The wall sizes range from 72 to approximately 2,955 sq.ft, and all will be cleaned and prepared with a first coat of sealant. Working from top to bottom, a hired team of OSHA-compliant professionals trained in painting from scissor lifts will outline and paint the artwork, and then community volunteers will help the selected local artists paint the remaining portion of their design closest to the ground. To our fortune, the walls rise above open lots and parking lots, where gathering and artist talks can be held in celebration of the murals. Town Green District will work with artists and painter teams to establish liability insurance for the project. "
