Under A Sky Azure
104 N. 5TH STREET
As a part of the Downtown Mural Program, Artesia Public School Art teachers Brandi Cox and Juli Newton developed a Student Mural Program that gives art students a chance to share their talents with everyone.
“Under A Sky Of Azure” is the program’s first student mural and was created in June 2021. The title was inspired by the first line of New Mexico’s State Song “O Fair New Mexico” by Elizabeth Garrett.
Art students Andrea Alvarado, Megan Cluff, Anna Netherlin and Irelynn Ramsey were assisted by Lola & Violet Newton. The students incorporated the wall’s imperfections (and 90-year-old paint drips!) into their overall texturing and color blending.
This mural was funded by a grant from the Written In Red Foundation.
THIS PROGRAM IS PART OF THE ARTESIA ARTS AND CULTURAL DISTRICT.
