cherish the day

(robert glasper)

i must say, DAMN it feels good to simply paint something beautiful in a beautiful way. no conceptual intent, no layered meaning or media, no graduate art school pretension. just some really pretty flowers, really big. whew. alas, my 5x5 foot detail for the mural arts exhibition in june. still a little more to touch up, but it's just about resolved..

a couple illustrations i produced earlier this month as a Griot Apparel collaboration with the RFK Foundation. the collaboration didn't quite materialize, but this work will be the jump-off for a future RFK design we may release independently..

and, while i'm at it, another quick first glance..

Philadelphia Mural Training Program Exhibition

Details on my upcoming Mural Training Program Exhibition in Philly!

- - -

Please join us for the opening reception of works created by students in the Mural Training Program. The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program is always looking to expand its pool of professional mural artists, and offers a Mural Training Program for artists who are interested in learning how to adapt their studio painting skills to public mural making. The goal of this training is to teach artists who already have strong painting foundations the skills to work collaboratively with communities to create public art murals.

The works in this exhibition feature works created by the students of this year’s class: Reut Asimini, Brian Baker, Julia Cocuzza, Marcine Franckowiak, Domenic Frunzi, Jean-Jacques Gabriel, Erica Harney, Erik Reinertsen, Lauren Rinaldi, David Staller, Polina Volfovich, and Emily White.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 13th, 5:30pm-7:30pm
The Lincoln Financial Mural Arts Center at the Thomas Eakins House

Exhibition will be on display from June 13 through 29th, 2012.
