The newly-formed Letterkenny art group, The A-rt Team have been awarded a Development Fund Initiative grant in aid of their efforts to create murals designed by local artists through the town centre in various locations.
The group formed this year in order to support local artists both financially and promotionally and aimed at showcasing artists individual artwork and style.
These designs will then be showcased as a mural on the gable end walls of the town centre.
Committee Treasurer, Finn O Donnell said “I had this idea for a while now and I wasn’t sure if it would take off but I contacted our now committee, chair John Muldowney and local artist Steven Crane to see if this idea would work.
“Once we established a group, I began to believe in it. Since the group has formed, we have got amazing positive feedback and this newly awarded grant is further affirmation of that feedback.
“I believe we are off the ground running now and we need to keep at it to help support not just our local artists, but our business’s, our tourist industry and our local economy.
The art group currently have a go fund me page that people can donate to help. Please see https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-the-art-team?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf%20share-flow-1&fbclid=IwAR2mguRjqdC_z8-1pPqlCBYU40BpO8lztkMQ5fze-zYS36cYZi7b1zUuUAM
