We are so excited to have 5 teams confirmed for this years mural project! The 2012 Participating Teams are: Humanex Academy, Access Gallery, Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School, Urban Peak and The Boys and Girls Club – Wilfley Branch.  The teams will be creating murals focused on this years theme-Green Up! Murals will represent sustainability, recycling, composting and anything and everything GREEN in the eyes of the artists. These creative teams will take this theme and run with it-  be sure to come by the mural tents, watch their creativity in action, and vote for your favorite mural! The People’s Fair Mural Project offers a great opportunity for these local youth organizations to express themselves in a positive manner, meet local artists and get advice and recognition from thousands of fair goers!  For more information on the Mural Project or to sponsor the Mural Show at Access Gallery from June 15- July 7 please contact!
