In September 2017, the City of Orlando’s Community Redevelopment Agency sought artists to create artwork for two walls located on the Gertrude’s Walk Urban Trail. On Saturday, October 13, artist Martha Lent will begin painting. Later this month, artist Andrew Reid will begin painting the second wall for Gertrude’s Walk Urban Trail. The theme of the wall is Urban Lifestyle.
The mural walls will provide visual flow representing the ever-changing activity and excitement of downtown Orlando. The walls scale and length offer a unique opportunity for displaying powerful bold art. These canvases serve to act as a catalyst to inspire cyclists and pedestrians to adventure onto the trail and will add to the growing collection of outdoor art accessible in downtown.
Stay tuned on our Facebook page for live interviews with both artists.
