Everything old is new again!
My concept is based on the way a car wash works. Your car gets dirty and feels old and when you enter the car wash stall the image you see is the old man a bit weathered and tarnished with a thick beard and a wrinkled face. After a good wash, you leave the stall and see in the rear view miror the face of the young man fresh and clean.
Westside Mural Project is a collaboration between Letter75 and Lean Draft House. Our goal is to bring art to public spaces in an effort to enhance outdoor spaces. Westside Mural Project challenges artists to create environments for the public to experience within car wash bays in the South West Community of Atlanta. Each selected artist (artist team) will be given a car wash bay (2x) 20ft x 9ft walls to paint a mural on (both walls of the bay). Westside Mural Project invites the community to engage with the artists during the three day execution of the projects.
Artist (artist teams) will be given three days to complete the mural. This project is also intended to encourage local artists from diverse backgrounds to expand and work outside of their comfort zones to push their parameters of art and in return increase public access to the arts. One bay will be dedicated for the community and public participation which offers a safe places for experimentation. This years three day event will be June 21st-23rd. We encourage everyone from all ages and backgrounds to participate.
