A New Tunnel Art in Longmont Colorado is Coming Soon!

Tunnel art at 21st & Hover street underpass in Longmont, CO will be my next exciting project! The underpass is mostly used by bicycle and pedestrian traffic from nearby communities, who are going to McIntosh Lake, Garden Acres park, using the designated “Longmont (bicycle) Loop” or accessing the many businesses. Mural Design Longmont is a small city with a growing population that still has a small town feel, honoring the historical roots to the Chicago colony while concurrently embracing the technological advances of modern day society and the opportunities provided. Longmont continues to grow in its representation of diverse cultures. Realistic images are mixed in with stylized, representing the diversity of culture in Longmont. Poppy flowers, osprey, a cyclist on a mountain pass, and historic colonial buildings. Multi Modal colorful design elements resemble a collage or a quilt. The walls inside the underpass will have light and bright colors to brighten up the tunnel and invite people to go through the underpass.

Ground Mural Painting in Mountair Park

Ground Mural Painting in Mountair Park

My second ground mural painting for Lakewood’s 40 West Art Line. The mural is painted right next to the children’s playground and baseball field in Mountair Park. The mural is called “Blooming city”. The mural design was inspired by the agricultural history of Lakewood and the urban farm that is also in Mountair Park. The flowers and plants represent the growth and new beginnings that are happening in the city.

Design for Alameda Light rail Station Mural Project

Design for Alameda Light rail Station Mural Project

The design for “Alameda” light rail station in Denver, CO was one among other projects that I created and submitted in 2017. It was an international call with hundreds of submissions from all over the world, but I still decided to participate. The building where the mural was planned to be painted on belongs to Xcel Energy. That is why it was encouraged to have elements of electricity, energy, and sustainability. It is a long wall that was wrapping the building, with many “bends” and corners. Other themes to be included were transportation and city life due to the initiator of the project, The Denver Light Rail transit system. My idea was to create a detailed mural with strong symbolic significance as well as very monumental and powerful. My design has many faces, people, and emotions in it.   I tried to interlace timeless elements of nature with modern life and with its characteristics: electricity, transportation, cities, and industrialism. At the same time, I wanted this mural to give a feeling of hope and optimism for the future.   As with a few other projects of 2017 that I wrote posts about, my design wasn’t chosen for realization. But it was fun to participate in this project, create an interesting design and learn a lot about Denver through research in preparation for it. Denver, CO /...
The Creation of an Interior Mural for a Swimming Pool

The Creation of an Interior Mural for a Swimming Pool

The Interior mural for Lakewood Link Recreation Center Swimming pool was created spring 2017. The wall art was painted with high-build epoxy based paint. This material tenaciously adheres to the substrate to resist moisture, abrasion, chemical attack and extreme temperatures.     Tha mural was painted by me, with my husband, Nick Angelo. The first day two ladies from the Lakewood volunteer group were learning the techniques of mural painting. The Rocky Mountains and bright sun were the centerpieces of the mural. The view of the mural from the center floor, where the entrance into the water slide is located. We’re enjoying the finished mural.    The wall before and after the mural.

Sidewalk Chalk Art for the 7/20 Memorial Foundation Fundraiser in Aurora, CO

On Saturday, August 26, 2017, I participated among 14 featured artists to create sidewalk chalk art at the 7/20 Memorial Foundation’s “Reflection Garden on Tap: 5K and Beer Fest”. This event was a fundraiser for the permanent memorial that has been commissioned to honor the victims, survivors, and heroes of the Aurora Theater Shooting. The chalk art festival was located at the site where the memorial will be built. The location: Aurora Xeriscape Garden – north west corner of Alameda Parkway and Chambers Road.     Each artist was given 3’ x 3’ square and chalk to draw a flower from the list of plants that are grown at the Reflection Gardens. I chose to chalk an Iris (Iris x germanica, Bearded Iris), as it’s one of my favorite flowers. I drew it among other plants and flowers in my other mural projects > Nick Angelo and I, helped me to draw, and started work on our piece the night before. There was no shade and to escape hot August sun we did most of the work under the street light on Friday night.    ____  Night chalking. The next morning I did some final lines and details.  After we took the tape off the drawing looked finished.
