Art In Public Places

The City of Fort Collins has a wonderful Art in Public Places Program. I have painted murals on electric transformer cabinets for APP’s Art in the Alleys Program. It is a triple win situation:

  1. taggers tend to leave painted cabinets alone, saving the City thousands annually in cleanup expenses

  2. the once drab alleys become open air art galleries for the public to enjoy

  3. the artist gets exposure and a set fee based on surface area painted as well as interaction with families and children who have the opportunity to view the mural stages from beginning to completion

   An instar is a stage in the life of an insect between two successive molts.

   The first instar of the Tiger Swallowtail butterfly looks like bird poop which helps protect it from being eaten.
