+ Community = Art"
with Michael Mosher
Perhaps the most successful community mural
project by Mike Mosher’s Art 433 Community Murals class is in downtown Bay City, memorable moments from the city's history
now on the Bayshire Building on Saginaw Street (corner 4th Street).
Students in the Winter 2018 class
worked with the Downtown Management Board, Studio 23 and local history expert Eric Jylha to select imagery for ten shaped
acrylics on plywood panels depicting local types, personages and events from our 19th & 20th century
Mr. Mosher will use this mural to discuss history motifs in his own projects, like “The
Mission Reds at Woodward’s Gardens” and “San Francisco’s Music” at its Laguna Honda Hospital.
He will discuss what makes an effective community mural, and the difference between big paintings, public art, community art,
graffiti and street art. ________________________________
