If you attended Life is Beautiful the past couple years then you may have seen Eric’s work displayed at the festival. This year he was commissioned to paint another larger than life mural for Ferguson’s “Market in the Alley”. The mural is titled “The Courage of Creation.”
Ferguson’s is a local organization that is revitalization old buildings and spaces in Downtown, mostly down on East Fremont. Their goal is to engage the local community of artists, makers, and the like, with the rest of the surrounding area by adding new life to these forgotten spaces.
Market In The Alley is a monthly market, held by Ferguson’s, that consists of all local creators and acts as a farmer’s market type model where the community can come and engage, support, and discover new local artisans.
Market In the Alley was included in this year’s Life Is Beautiful so they handpicked Eric to paint a mural that would be showcased during the festival, as well as live on for future events.
