Florida Wildlife Corridor Mural Unveiling
October 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
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.
