JACKSON, Wyo. — Previously blank walls in Jackson’s alleyways are now adorned by lively mural installations, all brought to life by local artists in the valley.
Yesterday, Jackson Hole Public Art (Public Art) held an opening event at The Center for the Arts to celebrate the debut of this year’s WildWalls.
Over the last several months, Public Art and local artists have been busy at work, printing large-scale artworks and prepping sites for the annual mural event which runs through early September.
Two permanent murals and nine temporary wheat-pasted murals are up around the town, most with Augmented Reality (AR) features that transform the static image into a live animation on current science from the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
“By showing artworks in iconic public settings, WildWalls aims to reach broad audiences with conservation messages through public art,” said Public Art.
