Charleston, SC

November 18th-23rd

In Charleston the program had two murals to paint. The first one was for Nectar Sunglasses, a sunglasses company owned and run by local surfers. The second mural was for PBR in a popular dive bar, Upper Deck Tavern. 

The team painted a mural in the Nectar's offices making sure to incorporate the brand's identity, living the “the sweet life”. The Nectar guys and gals were extremely fun to work with and provided the team with a spot for their RVS as well as sunglasses and hats.

At the Upper Deck Tavern for PBR, the team collaborated on a black & white mural. Again the team had creative control over the project and enjoyed and tried to pair the mural with the bar's aesthetic.

Savannah, GA

November 23rd-25th

Savannah was a great time full of celebrations, a Thanksgiving feast in a barn & Director Denton Burrows' birthday. 

The program stayed at the Red Gate Farm, a farm and RV campsite where they enjoyed a massive thanksgiving meal with 70+ RVers from around the US and Canada. Every RV was expected to bring at least one dish to the family style meal. Needless to say the program enjoyed a truly special Thanksgiving experience.

For Denton's birthday celebration the team went to a shooting range. Most had never shot a gun before which made for an interesting experience that led to many conversations.

Miami Art Basel Murals!

Miami Art Basel is an intense experience; work all day and network in the evenings at wild Miami parties. 

The team stayed in a comfortable apartment close by Wynwood, a neighborhood in Miami dedicated to and known for street art and graffiti.

The first job was with the Centre-fuge Public Art Project from the Lower East Side, NYC. Centre-fuge is very active in Miami during Art Basel and invited the program to paint murals for Wood Tavern,​ the most popular bar/club in Wynwood. The team painted multiple murals in the backyard as well as inside. 

While in Miami, the program parked the big RV in a lot owned by a young entrepreneur. Upon seeing the team's work, he invited them to paint a property he owned on the Miami River across from some of the hottest night clubs and restaurants in Miami. Each day the team was visited by manatees, porpoise, iguanas and tug bouts pulling gigantic freight ships; in the evening LED lit yachts adorned with smaller boats and jet skis would pull up to drop of actors, models, athletes and famous people from around the world.

Before heading back North the team had one more mural to paint for PBR on walls curated by The Moksha Family Arts Collective.

The final night in Miami, the team stayed in the RV in Little Haiti and enjoyed the last night they would all be together on the trip.
