For artists, there are few things better than seeing your work on display. Imagine, then, having a whole street corner to fill. On Saturday, August 17, community members will gather at 403 De la Vina Street to share ideas and turn in submissions for the De la Vina/Cottage Grove Neighborhood Mural Project. The mural selection process, put on by the AMASS (Artists Making a Street Scene) Gallery, will take place on Saturday, August 24, with painting of the winning design scheduled to start on Friday, October 11.
Artists interested in submitting designs must prepare a five-minute presentation, as well as an 8-by-10-inch (or larger) example of their plan. The winning work will include reference to one of three themes: neighborhood pride and environmental awareness; marine, surf, and sea life; or Southern California living.
