A New Perspective
This spring, UNC’s “Collaboration in the Arts” class left a lasting impression on downtown Greeley.
The students, taught by Art and Design Instructor Lynn Cornelius, collaborated with New York-based guest artist Alice Mizrachi to create a mural on a warehouse south of the Colorado Model Railroad Museum in downtown Greeley. According to Mizrachi, her mural work “often engages local communities and reflects positive visual responses to social issues affecting neighborhood residents.” She and the students consulted with the museum’s administration to design a piece that would reflect Greeley’s unique history and the museum’s mission.
Mizrachi and the students completed the mural over a week in March, working through snow and sun. The work was celebrated with a reception for the artists on March 26, and it is now a permanent fixture of the city’s growing public artwork.
