JOIN THE MURAL MILITIA!!
Seth Weber and his Mural Militia want to welcome you to be a part of their first big project: Project Outline. The “Mural Militia” has possession of a retired military truck that will be transformed into 3-D mobile mural.
A group of high school age students, with guidance from a professional artist/educator, will collaborate, design and paint the mural together. An object that was once a vehicle of war will transform into canvas for hope, justice and compassion.
The Militia will be appearing at several local events, where the students will paint the mural on site. The students will have the opportunity to hang original artworks inside the trucks interior ‘mini’ mobile gallery. The students and truck will then be ready to go on tour to multiple art events and venues.
A goal is to arrive at some places where community members who have limited access to travel during the pandemic can enjoy this fresh new artwork in their neighborhoods. The students will participate in answering questions and presenting artwork to various audiences. Some students will participate in the making of a documentary style film of the entire mural process with a professional film artist.
There will also be opportunity to design and create t-shirts and stickers that will highlight their artwork and promote their project. The mobile mural is anticipated to be an annual project and has endless potential to expand to include a greater number of students and include a variety of public art opportunities.
