The event will feature a presentation and video on creating the ACRA mural at the Buzz Ware Village Center with Linda Celestian, Jeanne Orr and David Gerbec.
This event is coordinated with the museum’s current exhibition: “They gave us good leave to wander: Celebrating 70 Years of ACRA”
Have you been wondering about the huge bird mural on the back of the Buzz Ware Village Center? Who designed it? How was it made? Please join us to learn about the history and the making of this community mural.
Linda Celestian, David Gerbec and Jeanne Orr will talk about their training in the Creative District of Wilmington with a visiting muralist from the Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia. The training enabled Linda Celestian to take the lead in the design and creation of the new mural for the Buzz.
Starting with community meetings and many hours learning Photoshop she came up with a design that could incorporate the children’s drawings (done during the ACRA summer program) into a cohesive image that encapsulated Arden.
The overall theme of the mural is the “Arden Child” and the kid’s drawings are about growing up in the Ardens.
The museum will be open 1 to 3pm with the talk scheduled to begin at 2pm. Drawings and other mural related art will be on display.
Refreshments will be served.
