The Alliance for the Arts is thrilled to announce the first phase of participating artists for its Light Projection Mural Rotating Exhibit. As a newly developed installation space and concept, this project is an unconventional outdoor exhibition using projection artworks visible to pedestrian and vehicle traffic along McGregor Blvd. Artists were asked to produce an 8.5x11in hand cut stencil depicting various themes such as messages of hope, beauty, the power of the arts in healing, healthcare workers, and community. Each artist’s work will be projected for approximately one week from dusk until midnight. This is a long term project that will continue for the next several months and may continue as a permanent fixture of the Alliance exhibition schedule. Projection of artwork will begin Monday, May 25.
The first phase of the project will feature the following artists; Pat Collins, Shirley Hales, Sharon Isern, Kelsey Lang, Carolyn Sommers, Alyssa Stoff, Africa Valdez, and Lorraine Weiss.
“It is our hope that by bringing messages of compassion, creativity, and hope that we may empower and uplift our community through the arts.” says Gallery Director, Ehren Gerhard.
