Maine Women int he Arts, Inaugural mural for City of Hidden Figures
Abigail is painting the inaugural mural for City of Hidden Figures in September 2018. Picture above are the design renderings. The mural will be painted on an exterior wall at artist studios Running with Scissors. Abigail chose to celebrate three of Maine's female artists, Dahlov Ipcar, Louise Nevelson, and Mary Mitchell Gabriel. she chose to celebrate female artists to reflect the mural's location, an exterior wall of the Running with Scissors artist studios in Portland, Maine. The three women share similarities and differences. It was important to Abigail for the mural to depict diversity of artwork- from sculpture, to illustration, to basket making as well as diversity of origins. For example, Nevelson's family immigrated to Maine when she was a young girl, and Gabriel is a Native American. Each portrait will incorporate images of the artist's work.
