"Wall of Hope: A Source of Strength" Documentary Premiere

You may have noticed a new addition to the artistic landscape in Golden along Washington Ave between 2nd and 5th Street. This new, 1000 ft long mural is the product of an 18-month long program that involved Foothills Art Center, Golden High School, Golden Rotary Club, and Denver artist, Jolt. The new mural is an uplifting message about help, hope, and strength, and was jointly designed by students working along with the artist. 

During the project we had a film crew on hand to capture the entire process and we'll be premiering it tonight with the filmmakers, artist, and our community partners here at Foothills Art Center at 7pm. Watch the trailer above.
