Cheer: 352walls/The Gainesville Urban Art Initiative, for bringing more color and culture to downtown Gainesville. Starting Friday and continuing through Nov. 25, and then resuming in January, 13 local artists and another 13 international artists will be painting murals throughout downtown.
The international artists will be painting murals on the sides of downtown businesses such as the Top, High Dive and Loosey’s. The regional artists will be creating murals on the new Make.Work facility, housed in the old Discount Hi-Fi building across from Depot Park.
This is exactly the kind of creativity that should be encouraged in a city seeking to be a center for innovation. For more information including a map of the murals, visit www.352walls.org.
