Workshop type: Illustrated lecture
This illustrated lecture will tell the tale of a recent mural project in Italy led by 13 Feet Off the Ground, a newly formed collective of 13 Vancouver-based female artists.
In October 2017, these artists, hosted by the Graniti Murales Art Residency program, travelled to Graniti, Sicily to literally "paint the town". This artist collective immersed themselves in Sicilian rural life for a month and created eleven individual murals and one group mural for the community to enjoy. The 13 Feet women will share their stories of the project.
The artists will talk briefly about their latest mural project to be completed this summer at the corner of Marine Drive and 14th Street in West Vancouver. Attendees will have a chance to accompany the artists to view the mural after the presentation.
