Artist Talk: Boa Mistura
Free and open to all • Register below
Boa Mistura is an art collective that seeks to enliven public spaces with imaginative mural paintings and bold visual designs. The team met as teenagers while painting graffiti art on the walls of their neighborhood in Madrid, Spain. Today, Boa Mistura is an internationally renowned group with projects in South Africa, The United Kingdom, Brazil, Mexico, Georgia, Chile, Algeria, Norway, Kenya, China, Serbia and Panamá.
In September 2018, Boa Mistura visited Akron and created the Never Turn Back installation on the High/Market Parking Deck in downtown Akron. The installation was commissioned by the Downtown Akron Partnership as part of the 2018 High Arts Festival with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Peg’s Foundation, Ohio Arts Council, and the City of Akron.
The Boa team is returning to Akron in May 2019 to work with the community on a new public art installation on the National Inventors Hall of Fame STEM Middle School plaza.
