Black & Tan Hall is thrilled to be working with artists Rae Akino and Brandon Thomas for a front facade mural installation project coming to the building in September!
Many talented folks applied to our community call for artists. We envision the B&TH building facade as a rotating exhibit providing a space to elevate many of our community’s incredible local artists. The upper facade already features artwork by local artist Jacob Dixon, who has an additional piece inside the Hall that everyone will experience when the doors open to the public.
Check out Rae’s work and purchase their prints and original pieces at www.raeakino.com/Shop. Follow BT and contact them for commissions, art classes, and more at artbreakerbt.com/contact-me.
