Hilton West Palm Beach has invited international artist Greg Astro to paint an abstract mural on the convention center hotel, in conjunction with November’s Canvas Outdoor Museum Show.
To get a sense of what’s to come, check out these murals Astro has painted elsewhere around the world.
Starting Nov. 11, CANVAS is bringing top local and international artists to transform building sides and waterfront parks with murals, outdoor sculptures and a range of interactive art.
To kick off the festival, the Hilton West Palm Beach is hosting Sip & Stir, a meet-and-greet cocktail party on Nov. 12, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Galley, the hotel’s nautical-themed bar and restaurant. The event is open for the public to meet the artists. Galley will serve a themed art-inspired cocktail during the evening.
The Astro work, on the east side of the hotel, will be the southern-most piece in the show.
Astro, whose work has been displayed in France, Portugal and California, is known for abstract murals that combine curves, dynamic calligraphy and shapes. His West Palm Beach mural will remain through 2017.
Astro also will collaborate with South Florida youth organizations including Place of Hope, The Urban Youth League and Boys and Girls Club on CANVAS Kids Day, Nov. 13 at the hotel, where youth participants will help create a visual masterpiece.
