Finishing Project Micro-Grant

Congratulations to Caron Bowman and Street Art Revolution for being the of our first Finishing project Micro-grant for their Downtown Mural Project.

We are happy to be another contributing funder to this project alongside SubcultureGroup, West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority, and the West Palm BeachArt & Entertainment District who will be securing the artists fees for this project. We will be providing the funds that will assist in the rental of equipment for the project.

These funds became available thanks to the generous grant from the Mandel Philanthopic Fund of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County Inc

The project should be completed by November 2019.

Name of Project: Downtown Mural Project

Description of Project: This year the project will consist of 3 murals in the downtown West Palm Beach area located at 518 Clematis and 105 South Narcissus.

The first mural will highlight the legacy of Jacqueline Kennedy. I will be painting collaboratively with another artist on the Jacqueline Kennedy mural. Moreover, it will celebrate the historical impact and localities of the Kennedy presidency to Palm Beach County

The second mural "The Jam 2" is a collaborative mural that will pay tribute to 5 iconic musicians that have passed away. Each artist will paint one of the 5 musician portraits. The musicians' portraits being considered for this year's “Jam 2” mural are: Freddie Mercury, Amy Winehouse, Tom Petty, Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, Phil Lynott, Chris Cornell, and Janis Joplin. These musicians penetrated culture beyond music inspiring artists of all disciplines. (This will be the second mural in this series )

The third mural will be a celebration of Indie culture.
