ROOM 711

In a quest to bring art to public spaces, Austin community art therapist, Wanda Montemayor, worked with other local art therapists, artists, students, art educators, and community stakeholders to organize the creation of a large-scale public mural in Austin, Texas. The Deep Eddy Mural is a 1,200 square foot tile-based mural erected at the oldest outdoor pool in Texas. Its creation was an exercise in strengthening community ties, healing, and artistic expression. It successfully integrated art therapy with public art to create a meaningful monument that can be enjoyed by the entire community for years to come. In this 90-minute workshop, participants will get the nuts and bolts of how to organize the production of a large-scale mural, as well as the essentials of how to organize a community-based art therapy project—from its initial concept, funding, to its materialization. A 28-minute documentary film on the Deep Eddy Mural Project will also be presented.

Eligible for 1.5 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
