PorchRokr! It’s one of Akron’s signature festivals and an amazing example of the city’s capacity to reimagine spaces and inspire community. With music as a common thread, Art x Love was engaged to run the @PLAY Remix interactive art district.
We put together a double-sided fence-line of collaborative murals for beginning and advanced artists. The murals celebrated historic events, local icons, renegade symbols, messages of hope and positivity, and included free expression walls and live painting by Nichole Epps.
In one day, @PLAY Remix participants created 20+ murals for the community. These murals were finished by local artists at Art x Love’s studios, and await installation at key locations in Highland Square and other neighborhoods.
