TunnelVisions 2014 Mural Unveiling
The Deep Ellum Community Association will present the TunnelVisions 2014 mural unveiling, awards presentation and live auction.
Throughout the weekend of the Deep Ellum Arts Festival in April 2014, mural artists from across the city were assigned four-hour time slots to paint 4' x 8' panels, to be attached to a 12' wide, 8' tall, 32' deep, pop-up, walk-through tunnel, invoking the old Good Latimer TunnelVisions project.
The celebration will include the fully assembled tunnel unveiling at 6 pm, with judging from 6-8 pm. An awards ceremony and a live auction of all pieces will immediately follow.
50% of auction proceeds goes into future Deep Ellum murals, and 50% goes to the artist. Prizes to be awarded include: 1st place $1,500; 2nd place $750; 3rd place $250; and a People’s Choice Award, which includes a free night at the Omni Hotel).
The project also serves as the launch of the upcoming MADE (Mural Art Deep Ellum) Initiative sponsored the the Deep Ellum Community Association.
