I’m super excited about “Jungle Gold” – my new installation in Silvertron Cafe for Forrest Park’s Third Friday’s “Tour De Loo.”
About the installation: “Jungle Gold is a tiled digital art mural that transforms the space into a surreal tropical jungle. Pinks and greens set the stage where hidden gemstones, jewelry, and gold chains create a sense of opulence and excess. Contrasting with these treasures in the landscape is the absence of Earth’s most valuable treasures – Animal life.”
About the event:
Shop local and enjoy your neighborhood restaurants and shops in Forest Park!
Restaurants will have specials, shops and galleries will be open late (5-8 pm), catch the shows you may miss during the day, shop for gifts while enjoying a refreshment. Enjoy the social scene of Forest Park after hours.
TOUR DE LOO*: During the Third Friday events, the Forest Park merchants’ loos are transformed into art installations by local artists. Matthew Layne, President of Bare Hands, Inc which creates Birmingham’s Annual Day of the Dead Festival, will vote for the best installation and award the winning artist with a $200 prize, sponsored by James Rushton.
