Enhancing Our City Through Public Art
For centuries, public art has been a way to bring communities together and create gathering spaces for residents and visitors alike. With Roseville's last public arts project coming to an end over a decade ago, our community is long overdue for a creative invigoration. Blue Line Arts and The Downtown Roseville Partnership are working with local business owners and artists to install 5 public murals in Downtown Roseville by Spring 2019.
The Roseville Mural Project not only aims to beautify the public spaces of our city, but to create the opportunity to experience art in daily life. During the installation of the murals, audiences will be exposed to the unique creative processes of the artists and self-guided tours of these works will make the work thoroughly accessible. This project aspires to trigger our imagination and create a deeper sense of community in the city of Roseville.
The focus for the project’s inaugural year of 2019 will be on implementing five fresh new mural designs on the external walls of businesses in the downtown Roseville area.
With the support of the California Arts Council and local groups for veterans, including the Women's Veterans Alliance, Blue Line Arts will be offering free Clay Mask Workshops and Mosaic Mural Workshops. These programs include an expressive art therapy component, culminating in the completion of a mosaic mural to be installed at the new Lohse Apartment Complex in Downtown Roseville.
With the support of Placer Community Foundation’s Giving Circle, Blue Line Arts will offer a free, week-long spring break camp for at-risk or under-served high-school youth. Participants will have the opportunity to complete their own mural with guidance and support from a professional mural artist as well as positive role-models in the arts community.
