The James Pearson Duffy Department of Art & Art History is pleased to present Envisioning the FutureWayne State University Street Painting Festival. This year's event will occur on October 6 and 7, and will take place on W. Kirby Street in front of the Art Building, WSU.  The event is free and open to the public.  

The objective of the Art Department Galleries is to meet the community’s need to participate in the arts by expanding exhibition programming with an innovative art project, bringing art making into the public realm. 

Murals play an important role within a civic landscape.  They transform spaces to engage the community and illustrate its pride, culture, tradition, and history.  Art and creative practices bring vibrancy to the human experience.

Envisioning the Future will feature approximately 9 public sidewalk muralst, created by the following undergraduate and graduate students from the Department of Art and Art History, WSU: John Avery, Kaleigh Blevins, John Gray, Mary Hodges, Melissa Lewis, Christina Moore, Jacob Peltz, Diana Garcia Rivera, and Daisy Rivas-Rocha. 

This event is in collaboration with the Wayne State Galleries and courses APA 2200: Introduction to Mural Painting and APA 5200: Advanced Mural Painting. The completed chalk murals will be documented for an online exhibition at waynestategalleries.org
