The Paint and Pen the Kenai projects officially closed to submissions on Monday. Organizer of Paint the Kenai Marcus Mueller said the final numbers are in…
Mueller: “So the Paint the Kenai project has 23 panels that have come in, which is just an amazing response and so excited that so many people have participated. On the Pen the Kenai side, the written project, the Redoubt Reporter reported that they have received 30 works, so we’re going to have quite a show when that opens up on May 2nd at the Kenai Visitor’s Center.”
Mueller remained tight-lipped about the content and themes of the artworks, but said he was impressed by the quality.
Mueller: “We’ve got an extreme amount of talent locally, and certainly the amount of community interest and support in this project, it’s a community-minded project with community participation. It’s just neat to see all the energy and enthusiasm that comes together.”
