Make your mark on our public mural!
*Wear clothes you don’t mind getting paint on!
Meet our 2017 Visiting Artist, Rubén Aguirre, a Chicago-Based muralist, and dive into the world of contemporary graffiti! Explore patterns and colors that are symbolic to our community of Saugatuck-Douglas. As a family, you’ll have the opportunity to MAKE YOUR MARK on our public mural, located on the West wall of the SCA building (that which faces the public parking lot).
"The unexpected beauty and intention of painting publicly has the power to change the perception of neighborhoods. While graffiti was all about making myself known as an individual, my current work embraces contemplation on a space’s use, history, and people, to re-imagine and create a public visual language....I think colors are very therapeutic. I think adding color to buildings really changes the context of what’s happening with the architecture and the cityscape.”
