SUPERMALL HELPS ARTIST BRIAN MAJOR ACHIEVE
Auburn, Wash., May 4, 2006 – Professionally acclaimed local artist and muralist Brian Major has been commissioned to by the SuperMall to create a unique mural with over 30 children from the Auburn and Federal Way Boys and Girls Clubs.
The mural is set up in four paint-by-numbers panels for the children to paint. Each child is scheduled for a two hour time frame on the separate panels. The end result will be a 10’ x 8’ permanent mural that will go on display in the mall. Tables and chairs will be set up at the event with coloring sheets of the same mural design so all children that stop by can participate.
Brian Major had worked on past art programs with other local Boys and Girls Clubs, but says this is a truly unique and rewarding experience for him. "Putting together an interactive paint-by-numbers piece to work on with children has been a brainchild of mine that I’ve wanted to do for the past five years", said Major. "It is a unique idea that incorporates showing what art can do while building character and giving the children something to be proud of."
