Join The Up Project’s official Cash & Boardman Mural ribbon cutting during Eureka Springs May Festival of the Arts on Friday, May 29th, 5:30pm at the Center & Spring Streets crosswalk.
The Up Project began with a simple stairwell and is emerging as a community within a community; artists, designers, volunteers and sponsors coming together to turn those stairs into a vibrant work of art. The drawings of students Kennedy Cash and Kyla Boardman were selected to transform stairs that connect North Main Street with Center Street in downtown Eureka Springs into a large-scale stunning mural. Professional muralist Doug Myerscough merged the works of Cash and Boardman into the final design, the results being reflective of our combined surrounding environments.
The Up Project invites you to walk down and look up at the results during the Ribbon Cutting. And enjoy this opportunity to meet some of the contributing artists and sponsors, including The Eureka Springs High School Art Club and teacher Jessica Cummings, project initiator Steve Yip Vorbeck, professional muralist Doug Myerscough and the amazing volunteers.
