Murals on Glass

As Public Arts Coordinator for the City of Urbana, IL, I developed an innovative temporary program called Murals on Glass, which spotlights the work of local artists as large-scale vinyl decals on windows in downtown Urbana. Both beautifying the streetscape and providing a public art showcase for local artists working in a variety of media, this popular and cost-effective program is now in its second, expanded iteration, bringing positive attention to the local arts community and Downtown Urbana. I gave a brief presentation titled “Murals on Glass: Local Artists, Downtown Beautification, & Collaboration” about this successful program as a part of the 2014 Public Art and Placemaking Pre-Conference at the Americans for the Arts Annual Convention in Nashville.
