PENNY LANE HFX MURAL
with Altruistic Current, July-Aug 2019
Made possible through the Downtown Halifax Business Commission's (DHBC) "Gritty to Pretty" grants, Altruistic Current proposed a collaborative mural, made with the hlep of Community Members and Professional Artists. Acting as the facilitators, Alt-C members cleaned, prepared and sealed the site. In addition they also hosted and organize the Community Paint day, where folks of all ages and abilities were invited to help us fill in the background to our proposed mural, on which four local professional artists added their stylistic touches.
In between the Community Paint Day and when the four muralists had started their work, someone vandalized the whole wall. Thanks to an extended timeline by the DHBC and extra work on the part of myself and the muralists, we were fix it in time to unveil during The Art of City Building 2019 international conference.
Over 60 people came by, of all ages and from all over. The event was covered by Stephen Cooke of the Chronicle Herald.
In addition to helping facilitate the event, I also scraped, primed, and sketched out the initial and intermediary designs for the wall.
