5.1.17 DENISE DUONG

Miami, OK selected Denise Duong  and 4 other artists to create over-sized art for their inaugural Mural Fest 66.  Their goal was to artistically enhance Miami by adding murals to buildings as part of the Miami Arts & Humanities Council’s efforts to create and distinguish the 66 Cultural District.  Duong was excited by the challenge of creating something on such a large scale and hadn’t done much planning prior to arriving at her ‘canvas’.  She had decided on a cloud theme and had done several large murals in her past.  She arrived with paint and let her imagination guide her hand.  See the event video here https://player.vimeo.com/video/216059105

 


 

 

4.23.17 GREG RAGLAND

Salt Lake City just aquired  Raglands’ energetic splashy 16 foot tall sculpture “Expression” to add to their public art collection. “Expression” paints the skyline of the Broadway District and  represents the artistic “Expression” of making art with control, movement and color.  The colorful paint marks on the handle and ferrule adds to the believability and patina of the piece.  The dynamic sculptural form ignites the skyline with a flowing splash of fluidity as a symbolic “Expression” of the arts.
