Somewhere Along the Line
In this video by Rod Murphy of 6;14 Films, Asheville artist Paul Olszewski recounts the long and checkered history of a large mural he painted in the mid 1990's and has since carted all over the United States. Weighing between 2,000 and 3,000 pounds, the painting was finally exhibited for the first time in the River Arts District this past November via crane (!!!)
For all you non-Ashevillians who write to me wondering what is like to be an artist in Asheville -- this is a video for you to watch.
I recommend visiting this YouTube link to see a bigger and better version of the video.
