I will be painting a 130 foot wide by 30 foot tall mural on the South facing wall of Epic Rides. My mission is to bring the Tucson community together to beautify the city while promoting an active, outdoor lifestyle and cycling. The mural depicts Sonoran cycling with a fun, colorful spin. Biking is dear to my heart as it is to so many of us here in Southern Arizona, and with so many great events like 24 hours in the Old Pueblo and El Tour de Tucson here, I thought this would be a great way to promote our bike loving culture and beautify a building in the heart of our city.
The mural is going on a wall that will face the new Aviation highway and Downtown Tucson, so thousands of commuters and people passing through the city will see it every day. This wall has also had repeated problems with tagging, so the mural will help with graffiti abatement. If you want to pitch in to create some great, lasting art for our city that you can be proud of please pitch in!
For those of you that don't know me, my name is Joe Pagac. I have been a full time muralist for the past 13 years. More recently I have been working to get more of my personal work out for the public in places where everyone can enjoy it.
By donating you are helping with the following...
Purchasing a high quality masonry primer for the wall. Purchasing high quality, UV and weather resistant paint for the wall. Purchasing a UV and weather resistant top coat for the mural. Renting a cherry picker. All the materials needed to paint the wall including rollers, brushes and a paint sprayer. Labor to paint this beast of a mural.
Risks and challenges
The main risk here is just me dying before I finish. I have done hundreds of murals at this point in my career and this mural presents no new challenges I haven't dealt with before. I am currently in good health :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
