ANN ARBOR – The A2AC Gallery will present new exhibit “Beyond the Pail: Mural Making and the Artistic Process” from July 29-Oct. 8.

Curated by Louise Jones, aka Ouizi, the exhibition will examine how muralists address the challenges each project and surface presents.

The show will feature artists whose work is displayed in museums and public spaces around the world.

“Beyond The Pail brings you behind the scenes of mural making through preliminary sketches, photos, and artifacts,” Ouizi said in a release. “This exhibit highlights each step of the process from ideation to installation, through the lens of 13 artists working in uniquely varied styles and methods.”
