June, 2018 - Here is the updated video for my latest Mural Arts project at the Hudson Valley Community Center. More on the program here. This project was made possible with support by the City of Poughkeepsie, the Awesome Foundation, the Giving Back Foundation, Sherwin Williams, Williams Lumber, the HVCC, Andrew Kaminski and Patreon supporters.
This video documents the making of the World Peace Mural...grassroots community engaged art that resulted in a large scale mural dedicated to World Peace. Shout out to the A to Z Impact Fund, the Global Sisters Fund, Evelyne Pouget (who planted the seed), Jesse Ditkoff Pouget (who designed the logo), Connie Bickman (who did SO MUCH), Patreon and private supporters...without you this would not have happened! Here is a link to the George Takei re-edit of this video which has almost 400k views on FB!
If you like my videos, please help support the making of them by joining me at PATREON....you will immediately gain access to over 20 videos documenting my work and processes. You can PAY WHAT YOU WANT and I will send you occasional 'ART' in the mail (and you can quit at any time)! The support from my patrons has helped with things like giving students art supplies, shipping the World Peace Mural, and pay for our wifi so I can keep uploading content! Please help increase my support base and JUMP ON the ART LOVE FEST at www.patreon.com/kellibickman.
