Special mural program at Preston Public Library June 28

Posted in Preston Arts & Culture

Mark June 28, 7 p.m. on your calendar for the upcoming Preston Public Library program, “Preston’s Community Mural: Meet the Artist, See the Process - Start to Finish.” A library program not to be missed!

The featured guest speaker is former Preston resident, mural artist Alison Love Unzelman. The artist will describe and demonstrate her mural design process from sketch to finished painting, the special outdoor mural paints and supplies used, and how the design represents Preston and the area.

Also learn about three Pop-Up Studio painting events the artist will conduct July 25-29 and August 15-19 at the Christ Lutheran Church in Preston; and October 3-7 at Fillmore Central Elementary School. These mural studios give people of all ages and abilities a hands-on art experience by providing them with an opportunity to help paint the large 28’ x 16’ community mural.

Starting in July, mural painting sign-up sheets will be available at the Preston Public Library and walk-ins at the studios are welcome both to paint and to observe. Refreshments will be provided by the Preston Area Arts Council.

This mural project is funded in part or in whole with legislative appropriations from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council and Southeastern Libraries Cooperating.
