"Queuing (20 Brattle)" is a new mural by local artist Kit Collins (www.kitschcollins.com
) that will be painted live at Spaceus in Harvard Square and incorporate the faces of the public.
This mural is a continuation of an existing series that depicts scores of people in ink and watercolor, on a larger scale than ever before. The project is hosted by Spaceus, a workspace, art gallery, and community space based in Cambridge. (www.spaceus.co
Unlike previous works in this series, "Queuing (20 Brattle)" will literally incorporate members of the public. To fund this project, Spaceus is hosting portrait sessions: for $25, folks can chat with the artist and have themselves or a friend painted into the mural. Signups are online (https://calendly.com/isabel-campbell-gross/portrait/11-08-2018
). There are also making several free portrait sessions available for folks who lack the means to pay (https://calendly.com/isabel-campbell-gross/portraitfree/11-08-2018
). Drop-ins are welcome.
