Eric Bransby Mural Unveiling and Dedication

When: Fri., April 20, 5:30 p.m. 2012

We've followed the creation of Eric Bransby's mural commemorating the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center's 75th anniversary, starting last spring as he and local artist Trevor Thomas drafted full-size drawings to lay out its composition. By fall they were painting, brushing on multiple layers to give the work depth and body. Tonight, their effort — all 27 feet of it — will be unveiled and dedicated at the FAC (30 W. Dale St., csfineartscenter.org), beginning at 5:30. At 6, Luciano Cheles, professor of Italian studies from France's University of Poitiers, will speak on the influence that Italian art had on New Deal artists, including Boardman Robinson and Bransby. The reception is free, and the talk costs $5 to $7.50. — Edie Adelstein
