Murals can be a source of pride for communities and come with their own opportunities and challenges for public art program administrators. Developing a mural requires skill and knowledge to best engage and represent the members of the surrounding community. In this second of two Ask an Expert virtual conversations about murals, attendees will have the opportunity to connect with experts in the field on mural implementation and community engagement. Participants will gain insight on what it takes to implement a mural, manage community expectations, learn about available resources, and more!
Stay with us after the mural event to attend the Berks Arts Council Project Stream Grant Workshop from 5 – 6:30 pm.
