KALICO Art Center
Have you always wanted to paint a mural or be a part of a community art project? Then this opportunity is for you or for your civic group! BONUS: If you sign up as a volunteer you will be entered into a raffle of REI swag ( backpack, water bottle, hat and a scarf)!
KALICO Art Center along with our awesome partners of Rails to Trails of NWMT are bringing more art to our mixed use trail. This summer we hired 4 artists to paint 4 murals on two tunnels on Rails to Trails mixed use path and we aren't stopping there. We have hired artist Griffin Foster to design and lead our community in creating a Glacier Park foliage inspired mural on the interior tunnel that passes between My Place Hotel and Glacier High School. These tunnels frequently get tagged with profanity and other images that don't uplift our community. It is our researched belief that the best tool to curb this, is to cover up the blank canvas with beautiful art! No experience is required. We just ask that you bring your own paint clothes and willingness to learn and paint with others because we have got the rest! (Any age is welcome to come, but we do ask kids and teens under the age of 18 be accompanied by an adult. Older teens may have an their parent sign a release form for them to participate.)
This project is being fully funded by the generous donations by local business', individuals, and grants. Please review the available slots below and click to sign up... More questions before you sign up? Email Alisha Shilling at [email protected]
