With the much anticipated Roots mural soon coming to a reality, The Mural Arts Program have created a series of events leading up to the unveiling. The festivities were kicked off last Friday, with the opening of their new studio space located on 641 South St. Featuring local artist (and Roots Mural participant) Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. DJ Afrodjiak provided the sounds, as attendees enjoyed several of Tatyana's portrait based works on display. The Mural Arts Program's Director Jane Golden, and Special Events & Marketing director Almaz Crowe were on hand to show support. The goal is to provide future opportunities for students of the Mural Arts Art Education program to display their work, and also host boutique style, curated events featuring one-of-a-kind items.
