Graffiti Vandalism of my Mural “Viva Colorado” on Alameda and Santa Fe drive in Denver CO

Graffiti Vandalism of my Mural “Viva Colorado” on Alameda and Santa Fe drive in Denver CO

Graffiti Vandalism of my Mural “Viva Colorado” happened twice already after the mural was finished. The mural was created in September-October 2016 on Alameda and Santa Fe drive in Denver CO. To see the pictures of finished mural visit this page> Because of the large size of the mural and low budgets of the Denver public art program the city didn’t cover the mural with a costly anti-graffiti coating. The very public location of the mural, on the intersection of busy streets with lots of daily traffic and visitors to the site, unfortunately, attracts taggers and vandals. It was vandalized twice within a little more than a year of the mural existence. The first one was written right in the very center of the wall, on the face of a  Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. A day later, after the tagging appeared my husband and I rushed to fix it to prevent more tagging and graffiti from appearing. And a day later the mural was like new again: The second tag appeared on the covered wagon with the first settlers. And as with first vandalism, it was fixed as promptly as possible. The Police never found the taggers even though they have a very good system of anti-graffiti actions. To see the pictures of creation of the mural visit this blog post> ART BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER!

My new project for the West Colfax Mural Fest

I’ll be creating a mural for the 2nd annual West Colfax Mural Fest in Lakewood, Colorado. It’s exciting for me to create art being so close to home, for my community, for my town! Because I just moved here, It’s especially exciting for me to meet the art community of my neighborhood, get to know 40 West Arts, the organizers of this Festival. A design for this mural project called “Life at West Colfax” West Colfax Mural Fest will be open on Saturday, August 20th, 2016 from 11am-7pm. It will feature juried artists from across the country who will create an outdoor art gallery of seven murals. It’ll be a one-day celebration of art, music, food, and creative activities for the whole family. ____________ Originally I created a design for this mural fest for the large mural, on the west-facing wall of the ARC Thrift Store along Pierce Street in Lakewood, CO.   But after the review, a mural fest commission chose somebody’s else sketch for the main mural. Because they liked my design I was asked to change the sketch for the smaller mural, size 15’x10′ that will be located nearby.
