This Saturday’s Art Crawl in Joshua Tree will feature the official unveiling of a new mural.
Jacob Dudley, a painter from the Midwest, was a 2010 Joshua Tree Highlands Artist in Residence, who now lives in Los Angeles. Dudley painted the mural, depicting a contemporary and stylized scene of Joshua Tree National Park, on three large-size canvases that are on the west side of the Joshua Tree Art Gallery. Frederick Fulmer of JTAG said the hope is to commission other artists to paint murals that can be rotated in the three frames. The unveiling of Dudley’s mural will be 6:00 Saturday; the art crawl goes until 8 p.m.
