Price 5x5 Mural

At Price Elementary, we talked about our vision for our Fund for the Arts 5x5 mural. The student artists decided on a seasonal theme that followed “Price Pride”:
P - positive attitude
R - respect
I - integrity
D - do the right thing
E - excellence in learning

Students drew various elements; instructor Annette put them together on the computer and added a grid pattern to the sketch. We made a large 12”x12” grid on the wall, transferred our drawing to the wall, and began painting...

IUS Veterans for Peace mural

We were honored to witness the unveiling of the Veterans for Peace mural at Indiana University Southeast in New Albany, IN, honoring those who have served or are currently serving in our military. Printmaker and IUS Assistant Professor of Fine Arts Susanna Crum and Mariana Grohowski, Assistant Professor of English, led student and local veterans in creating the mural, and LVA was proud to do what we could to help make it happen.

We thank our partners who made this possible, ArtsMatch and the Jennifer Lawrence Arts Fund at the Fund for the Arts, and Center for Neighborhoods, for their continued support, and Veterans for Peace for all that they do.
