As murals and their development within the community is what Brand the Moth grew from, we wanted to translate that knowledge, skill set, expertise into a tangible resource to new muralists in our community looking to expand their career in public arts. Working with an amazing team to bring this residency to life, we will continue to support muralists, students and art in throughout our city.
We built 6 sketchbook walls.
We had 29 applicants.
We had a team of 9 brilliants artists that helped develop a program that taught
both our new and professional muralists, techniques, tools and ways to look at public art.
We had 5 students. But also invited students from Queens University into the discussion.
We brought 6 murals to the city of Charlotte.
Thank you for believing in this program as much as we did, especially this first pivotal semester.
