Murals are perhaps the most public of public art, available to anyone who happens to be walking by. Creating murals is pretty public, too. L.A. artist Bunnie Reiss was in Carbondale last week to paint a forty-five-foot-tall wall on the side of Batch above the Third Street Plaza.
Since Reiss’ canvas is a towering wall, her studio is a hydraulic lift. It shuttles her up and down and side to side as she paints a forty-foot-tall deer, surrounded by purple columbines and other native Colorado flowers.
