MASSIVE MURAL PROJECT:
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
This is going to sound crazy but we want to do something HUGE for PRHBTN this year. Last year we had so much fun doing the massive Lincoln mural with Eduardo Kobra and we thought to ourselves, “Wow, there’s no way we could do something bigger than this.” Well, we want to do something bigger.
We’ve been working with our “mystery artist” to find a wall they want to paint and we keep coming back to the James E. Pepper Distillery Barrel Warehouse building. The site of former bourbon storage and some absolutely crazy Beaux Arts Balls over the past few years has an absolutely massive wall that our artist has fallen in love with.
To put this into perspective, the mural would be over 20,000 square feet which is almost two and a half times as big as Lincoln! This mural would be created over the course of three weeks in October and would require close to 500 cans of spray paint and countless gallons of exterior base paint to finish. In the process it would become one of if not the biggest mural in the city, state, and region. If Lincoln put Lexington on the street art map then this would put us in the Guinness Book of Street Art Records!
The problem is that we got ambitious after concluding the Kickstarter and we are coming up a little bit short on funds. The good thing is that we work on a shoestring budget with no overhead (PRHBTN is a passion not a business) so we are only looking for $5,000 to complete this mural. We hope you can help us out because we’ve already bought plane tickets and ordering materials. We’re flying by the seat of our pants right now but we would a hand from one of you angels with wings.
You all surprised us once and we really hope you can do it again. We Love You Lexington!
