Spring 2017 Community Mural Project

Published March 3, 2017

The FSU Department of Art Education would like to cordially invite students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the Tallahassee community to take part in and contribute to the Department of Art Education’s Spring 2017 Community Mural Project!

Hosted in collaboration with Tallahassee’s Opening Nights Performing Arts and Garages on Gaines, it will be a valuable opportunity for the community to come together to create a lasting impact on the city of Tallahassee.


Located on the South side of GrassLands Brewing Company, the mural will depict a paintbrush “painting” the city of Tallahassee with some moths and owls native to Florida. It is intended to be interactive with the community: anyone can interact with the scene portrayed by “holding” the brush and painting the city.


The Spring 2017 Community Mural Project will begin in March 11th and continue through March 29th, students and educators from the Department of Art Education being present to assist volunteers and the community with painting the mural. All painting materials, including brushes, are provided at the site, and it is recommended for volunteers to wear clothing they do not mind getting messy in. Painting hours will be every day from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., but make sure to continue checking the event’s Facebook page for updates and any schedule changes. Therefore, volunteers are highly encouraged to confirm the current schedule before heading out to the site.

All ages and skill levels are more than welcome to participate in the Department’s Spring 2017 Community Mural Project!


Join the FSU Department of Art Education in such an exciting and special opportunity to leave your mark on the Tallahassee community!
