Creative Creature FULL Drawing.PNG

A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT THE DESIGN:

In January, the idea for a group drawing project unlike any other was formed. A mash-up of 34 organic shapes were drawn in black and white surrounding the NoCo Arts & Cultural District logo. Once the shapes were drawn, a surprise assignment was given to 34 PEOPLE to COLLABORATE in DRAWING THIS PIECE! The Public Art Commissioners as well as the NoCo Arts Center Artists AND Friends of the NoCo Arts Center were tasked with drawing a creative creature within their assigned shape. They had to give it eyes, a mouth, pattern and a personality! 

Why? The answer is simple! The NoCo Arts & Cultural District is forming and developing because of the creative culture in our community and surrounding areas. This creative culture consists of all of us and ALL OF US ARE CREATIVE CREATURES!

The current events surrounding us are encouraging us to use our creativity in so many ways in our personal lives… From how we go about our day, to how we interact with each other, to how we remain and retain our positivity.

The Jeffersonville Public Art Commission invites you to flex your creative creature muscles… This fanciful design is anything but ordinary, JUST LIKE YOU! It needs color, it needs a narrative, it needs sound, it needs form!
