Take a Look at The Mural on Shaw’s Wall in Bangor
Ta Da. Shaw’s Supermarket on Main Street in Bangor is where Sam Bullard is wrapping up the mural they were chosen to create by Together Place Peer Run Recovery Center.
Take a look
Sam was busy painting but graciously paused for a photo earlier in the project.
Late last week Artist Sam Bullard said
We're in the final stretch. The scaffolding is gone and all that's left are some lighting details and a top coat. I think I'll be finished next week, and it feels surreal
If you are not familiar with Together Place, here is their building, 3 or 4 blocks away, at Union Street and 2nd Street
The project is called “An Optimistic Vision Inspiring Neighborhood Recovery”.
Artist Samantha Bullard got a grant to paint a mural on the canvas now known as Shaw's wall.
The money is coming from local contributions.
Here's a sample of Sam's work with a Wheatpaste wall they did.
And the close to finished product in such a visible spot on Main Street, Bangor.
And there are more murals to come thanks to Together Place. They have plans for two more murals in the Together Place Recovery Center's neighborhood for next summer.
Keep an eye out for upcoming call to artists, to determine who gets to do the projects, like Sam Bullard and the Shaw's wall.
This is a two-fold project. All who see the finished product benefit from more public art in the city, and those that are a part of the artistic project benefit with being involved in something very positive during their recovery process.
Win – Win.
Another artistic landmark for Bangor.
In a very high traffic area.
