Wow! The past month has been incredible. Most of it was consumed with my mural on Stax Original Restaurant in Greenville, South Carolina. As I mentioned in my previous post, I was collaborating with Furman University Art students, Stax and Pepsi. Today was our final day. As tired as I am, I still have to admit that I am a little sad that it is over.
Today we got to show Pepsi and Stax their final product. Everyone loved it, and eyes were tearing up. Projects like this show me how art does affect our community. As an artist, it is easy to feel down and uninspired, but today, I feel great. I feel like I made a tiny impact on our city, and I cannot wait to do it again. Until then, check out our mural in person, and "shop local" at Stax!
For me, it is on to my next project. Today, I have my first meeting on the City of Greenville's "Art in Public Places" commission. I am also gearing up for my upcoming 2D charcoal exhibition at the CB Caine Real Estate Gallery in downtown Greenville. The tentative date for the reception is July 19. I will confirm as it gets closer!
Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend everyone! Thank you as always for your continued support!
