“Paint The Town” – ImPRESSive

As if ABC and CBS news teams coming out to 13th Street was not exciting enough, just then the Miami Herald shows up too. Thank you to Erin Jester and Gregory Castillo for the amazing article and the Video all about the events of the day.

Here is the article written by the Miami Herald.  artist blog

 As I am finishing up the mural a few days after the event, The Sun Sentinel shows up, for the second time.

I was happy to see the article from the Miami Herald sparked the interest of a design magazine.

And to wind things up, the Ft. Lauderdale Observer put together a beautiful slide show of images from the event.

The Power of Good Press Is Impressive…

It is so valuable to receive good press on projects of this magnitude.  It helps to draw attention to the importance of the arts and the affect it can have to bring about change. In this particular case highlighting this local municipality that is working very hard to advance forward…

“The 13th Street Outdoor Gallery Project”  brought diverse residents together, replaced blight with beauty, and created  neighborhood pride, branding the area as a safe, fun, arts friendly community where people will want to live, work and play.

Thank You for all the efforts from the press, I feel certain that this colorful community is going to keep on growing and thrive, proving again that “Art Works”.
