Murals by local artists Erik Schlake and Roland Ruocco that have stood in front of the Alliance for the Arts for the last month has been vandalized. The 4×8 foot murals depicting Zelenskyy — one against a backdrop of a Ukrainian flag — can be seen by traffic passing on busy McGregor Boulevard.
The response is to not only restore the damaged murals, but commission 20 more with your help to show support of the Ukrainian refugee crisis as well as raise awareness about the role that arts and humanities play in our communities and lives.
The project will cumulate in a big reveal, community concert event on Thursday, May 5 from 5 – 8 p.m. at the Alliance for the Arts. The night features music by Karibbean Grooves and an interactive community live paint mural. The event is free to attend, but a suggestion $10 donation supports and sustains the future of arts in southwest Florida.
