Stacked Box Painting Party

8/14/2013

Hundreds of Middle Tennesseans are pulling out their paint brushes to take part in a mural made of individually-painted, 18-inch cardboard boxes stacked at various heights and lengths to create a larger-than-life art installation.  The collaborative art piece could set a Guinness World Record and we need your help!

The public-art piece will be a focal point of an art and music event, "Fall Fest at The Hermitage" held on October 5-6, 2013 on the grounds of The Hermitage, Home of President Andrew Jackson in partnership with Metro Nashville Arts Commission as part of its “Artober” happenings.

Anyone living in Middle Tennessee has an opportunity to participate in the project, and organizers of the project have made an effort to ensure that boxes and supplies are easily accessible “This project has truly taken on a life of its own and there are so many ways to participate” said Matt Fischer, Art’s Chair for the Fall Fest.  “Many groups have reached out with ideas for box sculptures. We are also pre-designing pieces so groups can paint by number.”

Come join us Wednesday, August 14th from 11am-2pm and paint your box! All supplies are provided, and no admission is required*

(does not allow for admittance to The Hermitage mansion, tour, or museum)

All public painting events can be found at the group's Facebook page, Facebook.com/StackedBoxCommunityMuralProject or at www.fallfestatthehermitage.com.
