WINNER! East Austin Mural Contest
Jan. 25 | Beautify East Austin
Jewel Salazar, age 16, is East Austin’s Mural Contest Winner! Can’d Aid Foundation and Raasin in the Sun have partnered up to create an art competition to inspire themes of sustainability, community, joy, equality, culture and kindness. High school students were given the chance to submit original artwork to be featured at the Station on 1202 Chicon Street in East Austin. Jewel will paint her mural to help beautify the city this coming fall. In the mean time, she has been given the one-of-a-kind opportunity to intern with Austin artists, Rebecca Borrelli and Brandon Campos, where she will learn how to transform her 8 x 12 in piece into a 8 x 12 ft. mural.
