Brigade had a fantastic open house April 26 at the Pima County Public Main Library in the Lower Level Meeting Room. The community at large had the opportunity to review the eight mural designs. Murals are being painted downtown starting May 2. The audience had many questions, and an opportunity to directly interact with the artists.
Painting will continue through June 6.
This call was issued statewide. We are delighted that Issac Caruso, will be painting at 9 North Scott Ave. and Pete Goldlust, at Old Scrappy’s, 213 East Broadway 85701. Both artists will be traveling to Tucson to paint their murals. We are still seeking assistance for accommodations for the artists. If you can help drop us a line!
