Stickum Up Jackson! is a temporary mural walk through downtown Jackson that transforms alleys into an open-air gallery that features 15 local artists and 3 emerging youth artists. Stickum Up is free and accessible to all and invites the community to take a tour with us on Friday, June 28th from 5:00 -7:00 pm. We will start at the Center for the Arts (Glenwood street entrance) and work our way through the downtown alleyways. Snacks and beverages will be provided at various stops along the way!
JH Public Art received a huge response to the project last year and we are excited to be expanding the walk this year. The number of participating artists for 2019 have almost doubled from last year, as submissions came flooding in and more businesses offered to host installations. This project celebrates the talent of local artists and gives them an opportunity to be seen and acknowledged. The murals will be up for the entire summer, closing with Parking Day in late September. Each installation includes a map next to it with every artist’s name and location listed, so those travelling the alleyways can use the map as a guide to find all of the images. Maps are available at sponsoring business locations, the Chamber of Commerce, and on the JH Public Art website.
The 2019 participating artists are Borbay, Boughton Walden, Haley Badenhop, Arturo Hernandez, Mike Piggott, Liz Forelle, Greta Gretzinger, Samantha Ritchie, Havoc Hendricks, Jina Kim, Natalie Connell, Cal Brackin, Kelly Halpin, Kay Stratman, and three emerging high school talents, Corah Pitman Miller, Miranda Raposa, and Mariela Santelices.
