Third annual MuralFest brings old and new

Posted

Hundreds made a stop at the Lamar Station Plaza for the third annual MuralFest on Aug. 12.

The festival featured Bobby MaGee Lopez and Dan Toro adding to knew murals to the area, artistic vendors, performances from the Athena Project, and live music from groups like Jolly Green Love Machine, Legitimate by Friday and Land Lines.

“We are killing it this year,” said Chad Copeland, with C-Squared Studios and co-chair of the festival. “Everything came together really well, thanks to all the volunteer help. It’s just an all-around fun day.”

One of the new features of this year’s festival was the BrewHop Longmont Trolley, which took riders on a tour of some of the area murals.

40 West Arts experts like Bill Marino and Liz Black shared everything from the history of the district to the meaning behind some of the murals.

“A lot of this is a nod to the revitalization efforts we’ve been making,” Black said. “There’s still lots we want to do to make this an exciting artistic place.”
