Beautify Kalispell project expands

KALICO Art Center announced the completion of the second phase of the Beautify Kalispell project. Nine artists were selected through an open competition this spring, and the selected works, converted into eight individual vinyl wraps, were installed last week by Wrap Hive at more traffic lights across the city.

“These splashes of color are already adding joy to Kalispell’s cityscape, and we hope they continue to do so for years to come!” said Jemina Watstein, chief executive of KALICO. “The project was designed to visually complement the city of Kalispell by inserting artwork into the community on surfaces that are often the target of unwanted graffiti. Art is less likely to be tagged and also adds an element of beauty to the surrounding space, bridging the gap between art and audience and encouraging community participation.”
