Molly Mendoza ‘14 finishes Fresh Paint Mural Commission
June 29, 2017
Congratulations to alumna Molly Mendoza on the completion of a mural commission for Open Signal and the Regional Arts and Culture Council’s (RACC) Public Art Murals program. Mendoza is the first of three artists to be commissioned for murals under the Fresh Paint partnership between Open Signal and RACC. From May 2017 – May 2018 Fresh Paint commissions three emerging artists to paint a temporary mural that will be up for a period of four months on Open Signal’s facade facing the highly visible Martin Luther King Boulevard.
