Message from the Mural Artists

Yeah Art Folks,

These are some fresh pix of the new murals for the 3RD WARD MURAL PROJECT (3WMP).  The murals are located at 1501 Elgin @ LaBranch, at the COMMUNITY ARTISTS' COLLECTIVE.  The murals face La Branch Street, to the west side of the building.

Each mural is approximately 5ft. x 6ft., and we used glazed ceramic tiles to create the line, form, and imagery in the murals.  The series was developed from a call for designs for depictions of artists at work or something relevant, and these three designs were the designs selected to be produced in tile mosaics.

There are two additional murals to be completed for the 3RD WARD MURAL PROJECT.  These murals are to be located at S.H.A.P.E. COMMUNITY CENTER at Live Oak Street and West Alabama, and KCOH Radio Station on Almeda Road.

The murals were designed and produced by the artists that were involved in our 4TH WARD MURAL PROJECT: In Memory of Freedmen's Town, located at 1011 Taft, Gregory Lincoln Education Center.

The dedication for the 4WMP will be held Sept. 8, 1999, 6 pm, at Gregory Lincoln Education Center, 1011 Taft. For more information please call 713-942-1400.

Please keep the feedback coming, as your responses have been very useful!

We'll keep the public art coming, we promise!

Best regards,
