After the sun set on one of the longest days of the summer, hundreds of visitors came to experience the familiar buildings of Mitchell Street like they’ve never seen them before during Temporary Resurfacing.
Thirty local, national and international artists participated in the event, presenting video projections representing a wide range of approaches and styles. On, between and behind buildings, the projections ranged from large pieces covering whole walls to smaller ones blended into storefront windows to experimental pieces that took attendees by surprise.
Co-organizers Demitra Copolous, Marla Sanvick and Maeve Jackson worked for over a year coordinating with business owners and participating artists, as well as building support for Temporary Resurfacing. The event took place between 9th and 11th Street on Historic Mitchell Street.
The first Temporary Resurfacing event took place in September 2014.
