Welcome to Artify Orinda!
What does it mean to Artify?
Artify Orinda is the idea of Maggie Boscoe, a longtime Orinda resident and co-curator of the Lamorinda Art Council's Art Gallery at the Orinda Library. The program utilizes the talents of local professional artists to paint decorative images portraying the flora and fauna of the S.F. Bay Area that transform privately owned business structures in Orinda with blank building walls and unsightly pipes into bright spots of color and interest. We call this Artify Orinda.
What does Artification look like?
The next time you are in the Orinda Theatre Square area, we invite you to take a look around for our first three completed projects. See details and location of each project HERE.
Artists are asked to include visible and hidden pollinators in their artwork. Young students will be asked to find them on future art walks guided by LAC curators.
Working in cooperation with the City of Orinda and the Orinda Planning Department, we also intend to paint decorative images on some of the utility boxes on the Orinda Theatre Square side of town and the Village Square side of town.
We are pursuing funding sources to help underwrite these projects so that artists are paid a reasonable rate for their design and completed murals. Acrylic paint will be used with final coats of graffiti-proof varnish and hardener to keep the murals from fading in the sun.
