During the reception, featured artists will come together to collaborate on three paintings live at the event.

In addition to the new showcase, Arts Huntsville and local artist David Nuttal of Artimaps are making it easier for you to check out area murals with the unveiling of the Huntsville Mural Map. The map will help lead local residents and visitors to visit and view some of Huntsville's unique murals.

Allison Dillon-Jauken, executive director of Arts Huntsville, said:

The Huntsville Mural Walk map offers the community a way to discover and experience some of Huntsville's most vibrant pieces of public art created by artists here in our community. We look forward to adding to this map as artists continue to enrich our local landscape with their work.

The exhibit will be available to view at the Von Braun Center from Monday, August 8 through October 28, 2016 following the reception.
