County Mobile Mural project open to public
The Colusa County Arts Council's Mobile Mural project has started and the artistic process is open to the public.
Four artists were selected to paint the mural: Rosa M. Valdes of Colusa, Gabriela Toledo of Maxwell, Mingy Velazquez of Williams and Kelly Barrett of Colusa.
Elvira Gutierrez has been coordinating the mural, which will be able to travel in parades and to community events on a flatbed truck.
She said the artists were chosen based on artistic portrayal of the theme that they were looking for and their talent.
"We're extremely excited and honored to have these artists work on our mural," said Gutierrez.
The Arts Council plans on recruiting new artists every year to paint a new mural.
"I want it to be something that people come back to see," Gutierrez said.
For now, Gutierrez invites everybody to come check it out the artists in work. They are hoping to debut the finished work at the Maxwell Rodeo on May 18.
