SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4) – The Utah Arts Festival and Mark Miller Subaru teamed up with Volunteers of America homeless youth to paint a mural and celebrate the community during the ‘Do Good Feel Good’ event on Saturday.
Members of the VOA youth community worked with Mason Fetzer, Utah Arts Festival Urban Arts Program coordinator and local artist, to learn about the skills and techniques of painting a large scale mural.
“The piece involves many different patterns and styles coming together, interconnecting and becoming more together because of the varying interactions of the different art forms,” said Fetzer.
During the event Mark Miller Subaru became Utah’s only automotive ‘benefit corporation
“We’re thrilled to host the Utah Arts Festival during our 2017 Do Good Feel Good event where exceptional local artists painted hand-in-hand with Volunteer of America youth to signify the power art has in uniting communities, ” said Jeff Miller, general Manager of Mark Miller Subaru.
“This new mural helps to showcase our renewed commitment to being more than just a business, but being a business who, above all else, believes in supporting people and our planet.”
Local artist Alexis Rose was the artistic collaborator for the event.
