Jedidiah & The Glue Network HOPE mural!
The industry’s brightest young artists from Jedidiah and The Glue Network teamed up to create a 8’ x 24’ mural during the 2009 MAGIC Tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV. This mural was painted live February 17-19 in the s.l.a.t.e. section at adjacent to Jedidiah Clothing.
The mural was fused of styles all centered on the fundamental idea of HOPE. At the end of the three days, this one-of-a-kind piece of art was sold for $15,000. Proceeds from the event will go to support Stand Up for Kids, a nationally acclaimed organization committed to the rescue of homeless and at-risk youth.
The artists that participated in the event are Blaine Fontana, Joshua Clay, Tommii Lim, Kelli Murray, Serge Gay, and J.shea9. Each artist’s style and talent were able to weave together a moving piece grounded in purpose and prompting people to give back to the world at large.
These themes of hope and giving back have been core components of the long-standing partnership with The Glue Network and Jedidiah Clothing. Along with a vast pool of talented artists, we have been able to come together to support numerous non-profit organizations through artistic and community involvement.
