Student Murals

To fill the pathways underpasses with art instead of graffiti, a collaborative project enlisted students led by local artists to create socially-conscious street art. Under the supervision and creative direction of Jackson artists Abbey Paffrath and Mike Tierney, 80 students consider four topics – Acceptance, Change, Diversity and Pollution – and gathered their ideas into four murals on wood panels, which were then mounted on a custom steel support structure created by Terry Chambers of Custom Iron Design. The artist advisors were hired by pARTners, while the project was conceived by Jackson Hole Public Art and Teton County Pathways.
