The Deep Ellum Community Association is proud to announce the “TunnelVisions 2014″ mural unveiling, awards presentation, and live auction on May 17, 6pm – 10pm, at 2625 Main Street in Deep Ellum, TX.
Throughout the weekend of the Deep Ellum Arts Festival in April 2014, mural artists from across the city were assigned 4-hour time slots to paint 4′ x 8′ panels, to be attached to a 12′ wide, 8′ tall, 32′ deep, pop-up, walk-through TUNNEL, invoking the old Good Latimer TunnelVisions project.
