313 Market St
Everything's bigger in Texas. We're bringing Dan Black into town from his home in Denton, TX to paint a great big wall at 313 Market Street. Dan is an experienced muralist who most recently finished up projects in Longview, TX and Alberta, Canada.
BLOCK PARTY LIVE
Kyle Confehr will be creating a 40ft mural, live at the festival block party on Sept 10. When the mural is completed, it will be moved near the entrance of Strawberry Square on Market Street. Kyle is a Philadelphia based designer inspired by urban american hip-hop culture of the 80’s and 90’s. His current work is an exercise in muscle memory, social trends and story telling through impulsive line work.
Broad Street Market
New York City-based artist Michela Muserra will bring her illustrative style to the interior of the Broad Street Market's Stone Building.
Michela Muserra is an artist and illustrator born and raised in Italy. After graduating at the School of Visual Art she worked as a freelance illustrator creating short comics strips for some local zines and advertising cartoons for the web. Her work has been showed worldwide in galleries and reviewed on art books and magazines.
Philadelphian artist Jacintha Clark is going big on TheBurg building! This wall faces the existing and massive Crystal Wagner mural at Startup Harrisburg on 3rd Street in Midtown. Jacintha has been involved in a number of Sprocket projects before, including paining the Midtown Cinema mural that was designed by Sprocket co-founder Jeff Copus.
Visible from 2nd Street in downtown Harrisburg, Vera Primavera will be filling the entire wall of The Plum. Vera is an Ecuadorian self taught muralist, whose art practice has gone beyond her country’s frontier and has been invited to paint at numerous festivals abroad.
Underground Bike Shop
One of the reasons we're driven to create murals is for the opportunity they presents to expose young people to art. For this project, we aren't just exposing them to it - we're involving them in it! Harrisburg native James Dunn will work with children from St. Stephens School to install a series of murals along the Susquehanna on Harrisburg's River Walk.
Sayford Market NORTH
The Sayford Supermarket on 3rd Street in Midtown will receive not one, but TWO murals during this year's festival. The wall facing the Susquehanna Art Museum will become a canvas for Craig Welsh aka @gowelsh of Lancaster
Sayford Market SOUTH
You've seen his work all throughout Harrisburg. He painted this super sized mural in York. And come September, Ralphie Seguinot will be going big on the south wall of the Sayford Supermarket.
Ralphie will be painting a mural on the Broad Street Market side of the Sayford Market building.
The 2017 HBG Mural Festival takes place from September 1-10.
strawberry square arcade
Local artist Samantha Sanders will be installing a mural on the underside of the Strawberry Square Arcade.
Regional artist Jonathan Frazier is primarily known for his expressive, vibrantly colored landscapes which have been included in numerous galleries as well as in juried museum exhibitions. At our southernmost mural location, regional artist Jonathan Frazier will be taking his landscape style big to adorn the wall of the Shipoke Community Park.
SHIPOKE COMMUNITY PARK
Jackson House Hotel
The Jackson House Hotel mural will celebrate our city's African American history by including famous African Americans who visited the hotel, like Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Cab Calloway, as well as those who hailed from Harrisburg, including German Jackson himself and Harriet McClintock Marshall.
