Nothing excites artists more than a blank canvas — in this case a really BIG blank canvas!
The Curry County Fair Board has approved the painting of an indoor mural in one of the large buildings on the grounds of at the Event Center on the Beach in Gold Beach. All members of the community are invited to participate.
The mural will be on an expansive space of approximately 800-1200 square feet with a completion goal of June 2021.
It is anticipated that over 40 individuals will be needed to complete this project. Participants will include community members of all ages and artistic abilities including Curry Arts, Inc. and Gold Beach Art Enthusiasts members, local schools and organizations, and any other interested individuals.
If you are interested in being a part of this exciting community adventure, the first meeting to establish a planning and painting committee will be held Wednesday, Feb. 24 @4:30pm at the fairgrounds.
Curry Arts, Inc. and its outreach group, Gold Beach Arts Enthusiasts have received a $550 grant from Curry County Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Trust Foundation to help with the costs of the project. A special thanks to the two organizations for their financial support and to Janee Lensing for spearheading this effort!
