Stickum Up! JH Public Art announces a temporary downtown mural walk with live installations taking place during Palates & Palettes, the kick-off event of the Fall Arts Festival.
Artists Joshua Doolittle, Jenny Dowd, Walt Gerald, Katy Fox, Havoc Hendricks, Jina Kim, Sophie Stoessel, Borbay, and our own Cal Brackin will live wheat paste, paint, and tape installations starting on Friday evening, September 7th. Their work will be on display through September 22nd.
JH Public Art invited local artists to submit high-resolution images of recent work for us to choose from. Participating businesses agreed to allow us to wheat-paste images onto brick or concrete walls. In addition to wheat paste murals, artist Havoc will paint a custom mural on a large trailer behind the Antler Inn, while artist Joshua Doolittle will create a masterpiece using tape on the Town Enclosure Pavilion.
Mural locations include the Town Enclosure Pavilion at the Center for the Arts, the Antler Inn, High County Outfitters, Shirt Off My Back, Eddie Bauer, Trio, Grand Fine Art, and the Elks Club. Printed maps will be available during Palates & Palettes on Friday, September 7th, just look for JH Public Art’s Mobile Design Studio located near the Center for the Arts, or find us at Old Bill’s Fun Run to get your map to enjoy a self-guided tour.
The idea for Stickum Up came from Cal Brackin, JH Public Art’s project manager and a local artist keen to get a mural program started in Jackson. Murals activate alleyways with art that is fun and accessible to all, and that helps revitalize overlooked and mundane spaces. Stickum Up is a temporary installation designed to test community response to murals in the downtown.
