Phoenix Festival of the Arts

So, another great newborn festival, right in the heart of downtown Phoenix! I participated in the Biggest Mural collaboration. Hugo Medina put the mural event together, and invited over 80 artists to paint. We were each given our own 4×8 ft panel, plus one on each side that we had to collaborate with the artists next to us. This was wrapped around the Festival of the Arts, which was originally for the Phoenix Center of the Arts, but this year was open city-wide.

The event was incredible on many layered accounts. We were all exposed to each other’s art, we were all exposed to the public, and the fact that it was so widely collaborative, even to the public, made it very endearing for the art community. We all are in it together, the Phoenix community is there, and it was made apparent by this project.

Here’s a link to the interview with Hugo. Excuse my extreme dorkiness, it’s just part of my nature. Haha.

And here are a few pics of my mural panel:

Again, I wish I was a little more prepared, and I would have taken photos of other’s work, and with other artists. I’ll be sure to announce with the curated opening reception will be!
