After over a year of planning, painting on Nashville’s newest urban mural Off the Wall Charlotte Avenue has begun. Organizers are revitalizing the 1,000-foot wall stretching from 28th Avenue to 31st Avenue with the creation of a world-class contemporary art installation.
According to Tinsley Anne Dempsey, project manager and president of Off the Wall, this group of contemporary art enthusiasts plans to invite a combination of local, regional, and international muralists to decorate 50- to 100-foot sections of wall in their own style.
Seth Prestwood, surrealistic artist and mural painter and graduate of Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, designed and painted the first panel. It will serve as a teaser to jumpstart an Indigogo community-based funding program. Beginning in mid May, Chicago artist Sentrock will create the next section of the mural.
Off the Wall Charlotte is a sponsored project of the Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville. For more information, please visit www.offthewallnashville.com.
