The mural on Keshet Center for the Arts façade (front, sides and top level) totals over 13,400 sq. ft of painted imagery. Feedback was collected on what inspired the theme of “community in Midtown” from residents, patrons to the Midtown area and pre-professional dancers who call Keshet Center for the Arts their “second home”.
Over 200 volunteers helped with the execution of Burson’s design, including community-painted shapes for the fence line to welcome everyone to Keshet Center for the Arts.
This project has been made possible with the support from Mural Fest, Bernalillo County Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins, The City of Albuquerque Councilor Pat Davis, paint sponsor, Mike’s Quality Painting and Sherwin Williams, Richard Levy Gallery, @Midtown partners – 21st Century Public Academy, Calibers, Osteostrong Midtown, The Daily Grind, Stone Age Climbing Gym, Amore Neapolitan Pizzeria, Epiphany Espresso and Chumly’s Southwestern.
Established in 1996, Keshet’s mission is to inspire and unite community by fostering unlimited possibilities through dance, mentorship and a creative space for the arts. In 2013, the Keshet Center for the Arts was created as a home base for Keshet’s production season and as a resource for Keshet’s national and global performing arts partnerships; a welcoming space to house Keshet’s community education and engagement programming; and the central location for the Keshet Ideas and Innovation Community (KIIC), a business incubator and resource center for arts entrepreneurs.
