We're proud to introduce a brand-new feature for the 2011 Colorado Dragon Boat Festival: The imaginAsian Mural Collaboration. We're partnering with four groups of artists who'll be working all during the festival on mural panels with the public's input.
The common theme for all the artwork will be "Ode to Japan," and one project needs suggestions from the public BEFORE the festival, to decide what images to include in the artwork. Just send us what you think a mural about Japan should include!
Another piece needs items from you that can be attached to a 3D mural made of chicken wire, crochet, origami, notes, knickknacks, whatever. You can bring them to the festival to add to the artwork, or make origami to attach at the Dragonland kids' area during the festival.
A third piece will let spectators add some spray paint to urban graffiti art, and the last is a cooperative of talented Denver-based comic book artists who will work on their mural while you watch.
