Transformer Mural Project
The City of Fort Collins is almost completely free of overhead wires. This is one of the qualities that makes the city a wonderful place to live. The disadvantage of buried power lines is that a Transformer cabinet has to be situated every few blocks. These cabinets are a prime space for taggers to leave their mark. To dissuade this, the City Arts in Public Places Program has sponsored a Transformer Mural Project where artists are asked to submit a proposal to paint a cabinet. The results are often whimsical and always a colorful way to deter graffiti and brighten up the streets of Fort Collins.
I am pleased to say I have been chosen to paint a mural this year! My mural will be a colorful radiation of lines based on the waterbodies surrounding Fort Collins. I will post pictures of the process. Thanks Fort Collins!
