Kauffman Mural Project | End of Week 01

Well, we have reach the end of week 1 of the Kauffman Mural Project and I have to say it is really coming together nicely. We are making tremendous progress although we have run into some trouble spots but for the most part it has been smooth sailing...We have made such great progress that I have been too busy to blog the last half of the week, so, I think weekly updates might be the way to go. Enjoy!

Kauffman Mural Project | Day 4

Paint and more paint, that is what has been going on. We were allowed to work on another level today so that was gridded out and sketched and should be ready for paint tomorrow. We have been mixing colors and applying second and third coats, an entire wall has yet to be completed but I will be pretty exciting one we reach that point! A minor stick in the road, one of the middle levels has to be completely re-gessoed...as we were applying tape it ended up peeling right off, so no bueno. But we have plenty of work to do and so far it has been an absolute blast and I am sure it will stay that way. Enjoy!

Kauffman Mural Project | Day 3

We are well under way with the project...today marked the final day of sketching and laying out the mural on both of the middle levels. Amazingly we have already began to mix and apply paint to the walls! A minor speed bump occurred with one of the walls and the gesso that was applied, but it shouldn't slow us down too much as another level is being opened up to us tomorrow. Show have some great progress by the end of the week! Enjoy!

Kauffman Mural Project | And So It Begins...Days 1+2

Well, on the tenth day of June 2010 after being oriented and drug tested we were officially beginning the production of the mural at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. I just these first two short days we have seem what an incredible feat this will be...to me, as I am sure it is to others, it seems unreal and it is beyond exciting to finally get started and bring our vision to life!

The first two days were spent griding out and sketching the mural on the middle level on both sides of the theater. As we have both sides near ready for masking off and painting, we will be able to begin that phase tomorrow and through the rest of the week. It is going to be a spectacular journey and I hope to share it with you all here, so stay tuned as this is just the beginning of this timeless project. Enjoy!
