I have been a part of the City of Thomasville, Georgia’s Center for the Arts’ FLAUNT show for the past 6 years. The past two years, the challenge is to design and paint 12′ x 16′ murals on canvas, to be distributed around downtown. The most recent FLAUNT, still up until Sept 30, uses the theme “Rock On!” My assigned artist was Gregg Allman. I decided to use a 3D approach – and was successful! Hope you enjoy.
Here is another picture, showing the whole mural, taken from farther away. I provided 3D glasses so viewers can experience the 3D version, but I think the image also stands on it own.
This event was covered in several area newspapers, from Tallahassee to Cairo! I got a nice writeup in the Cairo Messenger, and they published a color version of the mural!
This is my entry for last year’s FLAUNT 2014 entry. We were given a building and tasked with interpreting it as we wish – using black and white with one Pop Up color. I was given the railroad depot (of course) and chose my Pop Up color as Atlantic Coast Line purple – the railroad that came through Thomasville. I chose to present it as a Christmas catalog in the Lionel fashion. It’s shown on the side of the group of buildings just up from the depot.
