Water Street Studios continues its Activate the Alley “pARTnership” project on Tuesday, August 18, at 160 S. Water St., Batavia, to reveal a mural created for TriCity Family Services by a local artist.
To honor Water Street Studios’ 10-year anniversary, it paired 10 local artists with 10 local nonprofit agencies to create outdoor, public art murals that illustrate the programs and services the nonprofits offer.
All murals will be on display in the alley leading up to the entrance of Water Street Studios. The Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley supported the Activate the Alley project.
TriCity Family Services’ mural design was created by Aurora artist Maureen Gasek.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and uncovering of the mural is set from 5 to 5:30pm, followed by an invitation-only cocktail party (per CDC guidelines) with cash bar from 5:30 to 6:30 pm.
