Janaina Tschäpe’s “Forest Spirits” mural is now complete and will be officially dedicated this Thursday at the brand new USF School of Music facility. As you can see in the time-lapse video above, this large scale mural project took several days to complete, and it is now alive with color in the building’s main lobby.
Now that the mural is complete, it’s time to dedicate this bright and engaging creative addition to the new state-of-the-art space. This Thursday you have the opportunity join Artist Janaina Tschäpe, IRA Director Margaret Miller, Paul Reller, and other art faculty at this public reception and dedication of this new work of public art.
