The winner of the Johnson County Community Foundation’s (JCCF) 2022 Color the County Mural Program design contest and the 2022 Community Painting Day were announced today.
Chelsie Liberati is a muralist, author and children’s book illustrator with a passion for sharing art with the community. While working for three years as a commercial muralist, she traveled across the country to paint wild space scenes, hungry dinosaurs, and everything in between. Now, Chelsie still finds herself painting a little bit of everything, but chooses to stay closer to home.
She’s proud to live in Johnson County and wants to share just how great it is with everyone in the best way she knows: Art! With an airbrush in one hand and a roller in the other, Chelsie looks forward to working with business owners and residents to bring a little more beauty to our buildings, fences and homes.
"The ability to combine the location of the river and dam with the fish and a secondary, almost subliminal, attachment to Camp Atterbury with the topographical lines mimicking a camouflage pattern is outstanding. This piece will become a landmark for many Edinburgh visitors and locals,” said Dave Windisch, JCCF’s mural design artistic lead and Color the County Mural Program committee member.
JCCF invites residents of all ages to help bring the mural to life this summer at a Community Painting Day. Painting supplies and refreshments will be provided.
Community Painting Day:
- Date: Saturday, July 30, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- Location: 592 W Center Cross St., Edinburgh, Indiana
JCCF established the Color the County Mural Program in 2016 to celebrate its 25th Anniversary and has since painted 11 murals across the county. Color the County joins the community and artists through the collaborative process of mural-making to create powerful artworks in Johnson County.
