We want you to participate in the 2nd ScrantonLove Public Art Project: a wheat paste mural!
What is wheat paste?
Wheat paste is an incredibly easy and fun public art medium that involves creating the wheat paste (flour and water) and using it to paste up your art. Check out the amazing tutorial graphic from Yumi Sakugawa below . We’ll be using this medium to create a large mural in downtown Scranton.
Where is it happening?
The first installation will happen during May 6th during downtown Scranton’s First Friday Art Walk on the huge blank side wall of The Leonard Theatre on Adams Avenue. The theme is May Flowers. All are invited to show up and wheat paste their flower-themed art onto the wall. We’ll also have flower prints available that you can use and paste up. No experience necessary! This project is for everyone!

Why are we doing it?
We love that something as simple as flour, water and xerox prints can be used to create uplifting and unexpected art. We want to continue to beautify our downtown with public art that everyone can participate in and enjoy. We’re excited to do it on the most creative and fun block in downtown – the 300 block of Adams!
