Artist Peter Olsen Holds A Pandemic Mural Competition
Young Artists Are Catching The Semi Mural Painting Bug
Remember Peter Olsen and the tractor trailer that sat on a Salisbury Mills hillside with drawings of a child fighting CVID germs whole people “Oooo’d and Ahhh’d as they drove by”? Peter’s tractor trailer went to Middletown where it now stands at The Emporium Square Artisan Market (in the former Playtogs Plaza) where he has joined their art studio, and last week he set up a competition for young artists with a flair for painting murals. The competing artists came from all over Orange County to watch and participate in a first ever “Pandemic Mural Competition”.
Peter said “This was a great start for these amazing young artists, who are all extremely talented. What amazing pieces that are being created here, history in the making, each one with their very own unique style and they are doing such a great job, I’m proud of them all.
Thank you everyone who came out in support at Emporium Square and who continue to support theses young artist, keeping art alive! See Peterolsen.com for more information about his projects
