The Big Picture Love For The COV Mural Project!

We are painting a large scale public art mural and need your help! 

For sometime we’ve wanted to bring art and inspiration outside of the gallery by painting a large 1000 square foot public art mural on the exterior wall of the 264 West Pike St. building, right side of Glow Gallery, located at a highly visible intersection in Covington KY.

 

This art mural concept is inspired by the "LOVE the COV” campaign. Designed to be esthetically pleasing while planting thought provoking seeds through the content that explores the importance, power and our connection to LOVE.

 

the steps

The Big Picture Love For The COV Mural painting has begun!  Thanks to Renaissance Covington, inc. sponsoring us with use of their 501c3 status (for tax-exempt donations) and generously donating $500 towards the mural start-up. 

Despite the limited budget, we’ve decided to step out in faith and keep moving forward with this mural project. The lead mural artists are Collin Rowland of Rowland Fine Art and Benjamin Thomas of Daystar Art. There are several artists working away towards the completion of this large scale project. We are in need of additional funding for paint, materials and support of these hard working artists involved with the design and painting of this large public art mural. 

Limited addition art prints of the mural will be available along with a seriously fun art mural unveiling celebration! 

why we're doing it

We believe art impacts, engages and can help transform communities. 

In tying in with the mural's design, we will be releasing a version of the "LOVE the COV" bumper-sticker and continue to spread the “Love”.

We invite you to join us in “Loving the COV” by collaborating in financial support of this engaging public art mural, bringing inspiring beauty and spreading an uplifting message of love to the neighborhood and the city at large.
