The installation of a new public art piece on the Waterfall Arts’ building is a way for the community arts center to offer something beautiful and thought-provoking to the public while highlighting our mission of connecting people with the power of art whether they choose to enter our building or not. The mural’s theme is a nod to Waterfall Arts’ long history of collaboration between artists and its foundational understanding of the innate value that the arts brings to a place. It will tell a story that links the exterior of the building to the ongoing activity on the interior, while bringing color and visual interest to the center.
Over thirty local artists are set to participate by completing individual reflective narratives on the theme of home. When joined together, these panels will form a whole; a creative placemaking that will highlight and celebrate the natural assets of Midcoast Maine. Waterfall Arts is an active home, a nest, an incubator for the fine arts, a hive of energy and inspiration for the entirety of the Midcoast and beyond.
