Residents of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, woke up one Saturday morning to an amazing sight: The city’s first outdoor art gallery had appeared downtown literally overnight. Large colorful murals displaying original works from 20 local artists transformed exterior walls around the downtown into textured canvases of brick and cinder block.
The works of art on exhibit in the Oshkosh Mini Mural Project were digitally printed onto weather-resistant Avery Dennison® MPI 1405 PVC-free, digitally printable film by Oshkosh-based Art City Wraps, an Avery Dennison Certified Wrap Installer. With permission of the property owners, the sheets were applied by a volunteer team led by Joshua Marquardt, vice president and partner in Art City Wraps and an internationally recognized competitive wrap installer.
Mimicking a museum or art gallery experience, the Mini Mural works are hung at eye level and spread around downtown. Using their smartphone, visitors can access a specially created Google map to find all 20 locations. The overall project works like a walkable art gallery that is perfect for the era of social distancing.
