NEW PUBLIC MURALS PROJECT

Art Transforms-Building a Creative Community

 

Public spaces are essential ingredients in every community.  Public spaces provide opportunities for people to meet and be exposed to a variety of neighbors. ARTisNOW: ​Osceola Arts Public Murals Project​ coming in May 2019, will join talented local artists and community members through the collaborative process of mural-making to create high-quality public murals that transform and revitalize downtown Kissimmee public spaces.
