Local artist Shaun Thurston would like to see “20 Murals in a Year” as per his One Spark entry of the same name. Entry #767 is described on the festival’s website as, “Jacksonville needs more public art and my contribution towards fulfilling that need is mural work. Painting a mural can be an expensive process and most of the time, I cannot take on large projects unless the materials and labor are funded by a client or sponsor. This is where One Spark comes in.”

Lucky for Jacksonvillians, One Spark supporters and Thurston, his entry #767, “20 Murals in a Year,” was named number three “vote getters in art” for total seed money of $4,010.39 (according to One Spark’s tumblr page):

Congrats to Thurston and his team. We look forward to seeing more public art gracing the buildings of downtown Jacksonville.
