Jury meetings have been scheduled in the Southland and Leestown Road art shelter design contests. The Leestown jury will meet November 14 and the Southland jury will meet on December 2nd. Each jury is made up of representatives of LexTran, LexArts, the partners who are sponsoring the design contest prizes (nearby businesses and neighborhood associations) and the architecture profession. As always, Art in Motion facilitates the meetings but does not vote on the winner. Designers who submitted designs will be contacted and updated by email.
- “Murals are about people having an effect on their cities, taking responsibility for their visual and physical environment, leaving records of their lives and concerns, and in the process transforming neighborhoods, reducing vandalism and graffiti and creating new artists out of the youth of our communities” --Glenna Boltuch Avila, Former Director of City Wide Mural Project, Los Angeles
