Muralist’s pandemic strategy: Keep creating

More from this show

When the pandemic hit, muralist Kyllan Maney had several projects postponed, but she didn’t stop creating. She installed a pop-up art gallery in her front yard which she changed out every few days. She painted a mural on the front of her house and she started making masks to donate. She also teaches classes online. She wants her art to be something you can be a part of versus just looking at it. We will explore what it means to be an artist creating during the pandemic, how it affects your work, and what has surprised her the most.

Maney had a very busy life before the pandemic. She constantly had projects to do and loved staying busy. After the pandemic, she started to shift her artwork to more remote work. Her high school classes shifted to zoom, and she decided to pick up a project right at home.
