Kellogg Community College will unveil a new mural created by celebrated local artist and KCC student Jaziel Pugh next week on campus in Battle Creek. The mural is an exterior mural and it is visible during COVID-19.
The mural will be unveiled during a Davidson Building Mural Reception running from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center on campus at 450 North Ave. The event is free and open to the public and will include remarks from the artist and Justin Andert, who organizes the annual Color the Creek street art festival in Battle Creek.
Color the Creek worked with the KCC Foundation and the College’s Arts and Communication Department to facilitate the creation of the mural. The work, titled “Six Disciplines” consists of six panels, each approximately seven feet high and eight feet long, painted to represent the programs offered at the Davidson Center: art, communication, graphic design, music, photography/multimedia and theatre.
