Florida Wildlife Corridor Mural Unveiling

October 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

florida wildlife corridor brooksville mural
Award-winning artist Justin Alsedek is painting the largest mural in the history of Brooksville on the walls of City Hall! The mural will highlight Brooksville’s role in protecting the nearly 18-million-acre Florida Wildlife Corridor.
The geography surrounding the city of Brooksville connects the Green Swamp with the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge and the Nature Coast. But this stretch of the corridor is vulnerable. It contains numerous unprotected lands critical to keeping the corridor connected for both wildlife and people alike.

Brooksville Main Street is proud to partner with the Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation to bring a new and exciting mural to downtown Brooksville!

Meet the artist

Justin’s journey began in Harrisburg Pennsylvania in a home where creativity and music were encouraged. His desire to create led him on a path towards art school. He graduated from Pennsylvania College of Art and Design in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in fine art photography. Since then, it has become a life practice for Justin to take off to new places spreading his art along the way. He has had the fortune of seeing many beautiful places in and out of our country.  The exotic and geologically astounding sites he encountered inspired many of his pictures and paintings. After 8 years of steady travel, he landed in Ocala, Florida with his wife and son, where his art career unexpectedly blossomed. After more than a decade of commissioned-based portrait work, he is now making a living with his own work, traveling to art festivals, doing gallery shows, and creating large public murals like the one he will complete in downtown Brooksville. The mural will feature native wildlife and Brooksville’s signature tangerines.

Celebrate Brooksville Founder’s Day with their unveiling of the new Florida Wildlife Corridor mural. Meet the artist and partners while enjoying light refreshments and learning more about why Brooksville is an important link for the Florida Wildlife Corridor. Promptly at 11 a.m.:
