At Valspar, we’re proud to share the love of color, joy and inspiration with communities via our Be Bright mural initiative. (And more to come!)
GETTING BACK TO BRIGHT
North Greenwood Recreation Center, Clearwater, FL
Seeing some light at the end of the pandemic, Valspar decided to ask the Tampa Bay community – home of the Valspar Championship – where it would love to see a dose of joy, positivity and renewal. The selection committee chose this rec center, which provides after-school care and activities for children in the Clearwater area. It colorfully depicts the joy of hugs, smiles and FUN the world had been missing.
Zulu Painter @zulupainter1
This local artist’s work is large scaled and big of heart, designed to uplift communities with lively color and positive energy, so he was a natural choice for our first mural. His work has been seen and celebrated in many communities, at Sea World and Disney on Ice (to name a few).
BE BRIGHT! NASHVILLE-STYLE
Preston Taylor Ministries, Nashville, TN
Our first mural was so well-received, we decided to do it again! We held a contest at the Valspar Championship in March and PGA TOUR® Pro Brandt Snedeker won the chance to choose the next Be Bright mural location. Brandt and his wife, Mandy, decided to uplift this after-school center in their Tennessee hometown. The artist used bright color to express the joy and enthusiasm of the children it serves, who are represented in this beautiful mural.
Alexandria Hall @alexandriaolivia
This freelance illustrator and muralist loves how small, unseen moments carry hidden messages and emotions, which is why her works resonate so deeply and easily with all who see them. She has also worked with Disney+, Bloomberg Markets, Pandora Music and Refinery 29.
RX: HOPE FOR HEALING
Tampa General Hospital, Tampa, FL
Just what the doctor ordered: a colorful dose of cheer to brighten up the spirits of patients and visitors to this bustling hospital. The artists wove semi-realistic portraits of real hospital employees and patients into their mural to bring forward the feeling of humanity and caring in a colorful way.
JP and Vanessa Parra @artcapco
This creative couple is celebrated for their talent and ever-evolving approach to art, combining classical drawing and painting techniques with modern art and color trends. In Tampa, it all comes together for a vibrant, life-affirming work.
RX: HOPE FOR HEALING
The Dixie Center for the Arts, Ruston, LA
After winning the 2022 Valspar Championship, PGA TOUR Pro Sam Burns won the opportunity to choose yet another mural location. He and his wife, Caroline, decided to support the arts in their adopted hometown, and we found the perfect local artist. The result: an inspiring celebration of the arts, past and present, representing the deep history in this north-central Louisiana town.
KaDavien Baylor @kadavien_
This talented artist combines elements of design and abstraction in thoughtful works that promote our understanding of ourselves and society … and to remind communities of the beauty of human existence. An advocate of public art as a powerful means of communication, he was the natural choice for the mural in support of those who create and express their humanity through the arts.
