Project: Crossroads
installation at 1730 S. Akard St.  
August - December 2016

Reception
August 27, 2016 6 - 10 pm
Hosted by Shotgun Collective
1717 Gould St. Dallas, Texas 

I was commissioned by Kat Cole to create an interesting background to showcase her sculpture. The area space for the wall is about 20 x 16 feet. Her art is 11 x4 feet.  My concept was to make a covering to help set the stage for her upcoming site specific installation.  A few pics below show the graffiti and my proposal. 

The wall on Beaumont and Akard has layers of paint and a history.   Daniel Yanez had a lovely mural on this building until a ruffian tagged it.   I didn't want to erase the mural entirely but wanted to work in the new covering.  

Wheat paste paper maps and incorporate paper to work with original mural below. 

The Proposal: 

Install of Project: Crossroads happens on August 27th.
