Community Art Mural

Art Project to Create Mural: Nonprofit, community groups cooperating on initiative in Allen County

By JUSTIN STORY, The Daily News, jstory@bgdailynews.com/783-3256 | Posted: Monday, May 14, 2012 11:59 am

SCOTTSVILLE — Several organizations are teaming up in Scottsville on a community art project that will result in the painting of a mural promoting the city.

Heart of Scottsville, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preservation and economic development of the city’s downtown area, and Allen County Schools hosted a mural workshop Thursday at the Allen County Cooperative Extension Office.

Working with Bowling Green artist Andee Rudloff, education director for the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center, about 15 people gathered to sketch out ideas, drawing in pencil and then painting their concepts for the mural on a synthetic housewrap surface.

“I want to make sure everyone here is part of the final composition,” Rudloff said while taking a break from mixing paints.

The project has also involved the cooperation of the Scottsville Art Guild and Haven 4 Change, where the mural will ultimately be painted next month.

Before the drawing began, Rudloff guided everyone through a quick brainstorming session in which people were encouraged to come up with a list of five words or concepts that best represent Scottsville and then make a simple drawing to represent each word.

The workshop also involved a little encouragement from Rudloff for people who might not have considered themselves artists.

“Once you trust yourself with the brush and once you see yourself as an artist, your experience gets richer and richer,” Rudloff said.

Things and ideas such as horses, farms, downtown, friendliness and Barren River Lake State Resort Park were sketched out and then painted by those in attendance.

Rudloff said the ideas fleshed out Thursday would eventually be incorporated into the mural, which will be painted June 9 on a 35-foot wood fence at Haven 4 Change on Hillview Drive.

Jamie Boler, executive director of Heart of Scottsville, worked on painting an illustration of a streetlight to represent historic downtown.

Boler said he was encouraged by the turnout at Thursday’s workshop and looked forward to additional participation from the community on the mural.

“The goal is for this to be a community project,” Boler said. “We want the community to come out and help us put this together, and hopefully they can see the unifying power that the arts can have in the community.”

The date of the mural painting coincides with the first night of this year’s Arts on Main Summer Concert Series, held on the second and fourth Saturdays of June, July and

August in downtown Scottsville next to U.S. Bank.
