As part of our Create and Celebrate: Happy 130th Birthday to Gold Beach art workshops, 40 Gold Beach artists recently collaborated, remotely due to social distancing restrictions, to create a 20ft long mural depicting the Isaac Lee Patterson bridge.
The artists were each provided with a “piece of the bridge” in the form of a 12×12” canvas onto which a portion of the bridge was outlined.
The artists were given no guidelines as to how they should paint their individual canvas so the resulting artwork is expressive, imaginative, and unique … just like the artists involved!
When assembled, each of the 40 canvases will tell a small story about what makes Gold Beach special while also revealing an eclectic interpretation of Gold Beach’s iconic landmark.
The Build a Bridge mural will be on display in the upstairs gallery of the Gold Beach Library beginning in July 2020.
