New Art Wall Comes to Life in the Village This Weekend

Bryan Snyder has done it again!  He brings to the Village of Carlsbad a new Art Wall to grace the walls of Senor Grubbys starting this Saturday. 

The Carlsbad Art Wall (CAW) project's second year reaches its halfway-point with a local artist. San Diego muralist Gloria Muriel is scheduled to begin painting Saturday, June 4, 2016 at Señor Grubby's in the Carlsbad Village. Gloria will be painting all day. Mural to be completed Sunday, June 5.

Through her art, Gloria creates a portal to her own cosmic dreams and fantasies. She shows us a unique and magical world that exists beyond our reality—a universe in complete harmony with nature. Gloria’s intention is to awaken hearts and open minds to the raw novelty of the present moment. Her murals can be found in Mexicali, Tijuana, Guadalajara, Mexico City, San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Miami.

In 2015, the east facing exterior wall of Señor Grubby's rotated through five different CAW murals —each painted by a new Los Angeles street artist. Each artist was curated by Carlsbad Village-based artist Bryan Snyder with the goal of introducing new urban art to the Carlsbad community, as well as providing an educational setting for aspiring urban artists.  In its second year, the CAW will be painted by both local San Diego and Los Angeles artists. In addition, Snyder will host an urban art workshop with teens on June 2 at the CAW through a community collaboration with the Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club.

The goal of the Carlsbad Art Wall is to serve as a conduit between aspiring artists and professional artists, to provide a platform to engage and educate the Carlsbad community in the creative act of large scale public painting and to introduce a variety of new art and creative processes to the Carlsbad community.
