Over the past month, our organization and many volunteers have worked tirelessly to install two large 9’x17’ steel frames that house eight murals by local amateur and professional artists. Our sustainable steel frame design will allow for an ongoing rotation with new artists selected every April & October.
This project has only been possible through the generous support of our community. Glassy SteelWorks donated the steel for our frames and WOI Welding has donated their time and craftsmanship to assemble these frames. Diamond Rental donated the use of six machines for digging the footings, leveling, and trenching. Adobe paid forty-eight employees to volunteer on this project who assisted us in prepping the footings and building the forms. Altaview Concrete donated the 3.5 yards of concrete needed for the footings. Rocky Mountain Turf has donated 8,048 sq. ft. of sod!
As you can see this is a huge community project that will bring thousands of people to downtown American Fork. We have invited the community, all of our sponsors, and volunteers to attend the unveiling event on October 29th, and Krispy Kreme will be sponsoring the event with doughnuts and hot chocolate. The mayor of American Fork will speak, and our artists will be present to answer any questions that attendees have.
Come and be a part of a fun community event that support artists and our organization!
