In collaboration with the Shasta County Arts Council, Redding Arts is planning to commision a large-scale, world-class mural to commemorate the resiliency of our community and envision our city’s bright future.

Redding Arts was launched in 2017 by local art enthusiast, Tyler Linahan, as a project to grow Redding’s art scene and create local opportunities for artists.

 

After the Carr Fire, Redding Arts began speaking with the renowned street artist, BKFoxx, to commission a mural that would help our community heal from this disaster and enhance our re-emerging downtown.

The artist has been asked to paint a 2,000 sq wall in downtown Redding in the spring of 2019, around the corner from the Cascade Theater. The estimated cost of the mural will be $29,000, but the goal is to raise the first $8,000 by January 15, 2019. This initial amount will secure a contract with the artist and enable her to provide a sketch of the mural for the fundraising campaign. As she designs her sketch, BKFoxx will collaborate with local residents and business owners who lost their homes in the fires.

Like the Sundial Bridge, public art is a gift to its community. It reimagines a landscape, draws visitors from around the world, and gives our community tremendous pride for their city. We hope to make a lasting impact on Redding with this landmark piece of art.
