River Arts Announces: The Mural Project 2016
On the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail in Morrisville, VT
River Arts’ summer youth camp, The Mural Project, celebrates a fourth year of public art in Morrisville.
Thirteen campers (ages 6-12) participated in River Arts’ The Mural Project summer camp to create another vibrant mural, which can be seen on the bridge parallel to Bridge Street Morrisville – adjacent to Oxbow Park. The group was led by artist/instructor Kelly Holt and assisted by musician and artist Lesley Grant.
The group of young artists worked with exterior house paint and heavy panels of plywood to create the murals, which depict the surface of a river flowing and splashing with movement. Campers explored graffiti art techniques – using spray paint and stencils to create shapes of fish. Campers also created two indoor murals for the River Arts building Cityscape – sunset and Cityscape – night mural.
River Arts’ public art project was made possible by the following sponsors: Morrisville Lumber, Country Home Center Morrisville, Aubuchon Hardware Morrisville and Stowe Hardware. The project was also supported by Tricia Follert, Community Coordinator for the Town of Morristown, and Shane Prisby, Trails Manager for the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail.
