Art in the Open

Rebecca Schultz at Council Rock

Completed Art in the Open Mural

 I was selected to participate in Art in the Open in May 2018. Art in the Open offers artists the opportunity to create along the banks of the Schuylkill River over the course of three days and share their process with the public. On the first day, I walked up and down the riverbank, making sketches and taking photographs of diverse imagery; on the second day, I brought the sketches together in a mural design. The third day, we invited the public to help paint a larger-scale version of the design.
