For Ethan Murrow, that same wall holds an endless realm of possibilities. He sees a perfect space where infinite ideas can come to life. When others see a wall, they stop. Murrow uses the wall to travel forward into the imagination, a fantasy world where anything can happen.
Murrow's Project Atrium exhibition, Plethora, is a large wall drawing conjured by Murrow and brought to life by a team of artists. I was fortunate to observe the team throughout the process of creating this work. During the Third Thursday Tour: Ethan Murrow, I will share my experience watching the drawing process, discuss Murrow's prior works and some of the techniques used to create them, and provide a little background on the other artists who helped Murrow complete this piece. I'll even a give a brief drawing lesson so you can go home and try it yourself or take part in Draw and Drink on July 28.
If you've ever wondered how massive drawings are made, please join me on July 21 for this special tour. The tour is free for those who follow MOCA Jacksonville on social media. I look forward to showing you how this wall became Murrow's fantasy world and how you can make your own.
