PRHBTN: Artist Lecture at Lexington Art League

Art Talk, Gallery

Lexington Art League partners up with PRHBTN to celebrate the contributions of local street artists for the sixth year of this annual public art festival. The inaugural year of their partnership will feature a commission-free exhibition at the Loudoun House Galleries that will be open to the public. On Thursday, October 13th at 7 pm there will be a special panel discussion featuring local artists who are participating in the festival & exhibition, as well as PRHBTN featured artists Faith47 and Patch Whisky. During the festival, Patch Whisky will be installing a new mural on the community center adjacent to the Loudoun House in Castlewood Park. This site has been selected as a space for a new mural each year coinciding with the festival. LFUCG Parks and Recreation is serving as an additional partner for that mural location. PRHBTN & LAL are also co-sponsoring a special guest artist this year Faith47. Faith47 is an internationally-acclaimed visual artist from South Africa who has been applauded for her ability to resonate with people around the world. Her work will be installed within an interior space in the community and throughout her process she will create a documentary video that will be shown during the public exhibition at LAL. The site for the mural is yet to be disclosed. Faith 47ís residency is being generously supported by LexArts, LAVA Systems/Security and Block + Lot Real Estate as well as private donations.
