JACKSON HOLE, WYO — Stickum Up! JH Public Art is expanding the temporary downtown mural walk to open during Old West Days beginning on May 24 with a walking tour and celebration. The summer-long event comes to a close during PARKing Day on September 20 with a street party—reaching thousands of summer visitors, residents, and arts patrons.
JH Public Art received such an invigorating response to the project last year plans are to expand the walk this year. The number of participating artists for 2019 has almost doubled from last year. Submissions came flooding in and more businesses offered to host installations.
This project celebrates the talent of local artists and gives them an opportunity to be seen and acknowledged. The murals will be up for the entire summer, closing with Parking Day in late September.
Walls and alleyways will be transformed with art that is free and accessible to all and that celebrates our local mountain culture. Murals activate alleyways with art that is fun and accessible to all while helping to revitalize overlooked and mundane spaces. Stickum Up! is a temporary installation designed to test community response to murals in the downtown.
Each installation includes a map next to it with every artist’s name and location listed, so those travelling the alleyways can use the map as a guide to find all of the images.
Maps are available at sponsoring business locations, the Chamber of Commerce, and on the JH Public Art website.
The 2019 participating artists are Borbay, Boughton Walden, Haley Badenhop, Arturo Hernandez, Mike Piggott, Liz Forelle, Greta Gretzinger, Samantha Ritchie, Havoc Hendricks, Jina Kim, Natalie Connell, Cal Brackin, Kelly Halpin, Kay Stratman, and three emerging high school talents, Corah Pitman Miller, Miranda Raposa, and Mariela Santelices.
