“All serious daring starts from within,” said Eudora Welty, Pulitzer Prize winner and former Junior League of Jackson, Mississippi, volunteer. Artists Olivia Barattini and Savannah Salinas agree.
“I admire Savannah’s openness and that she is game to try new things,” says Barattini. “I admire artists who aren’t necessarily married to any one media or idea. You can go farther with people who are adventurous.”
“I really like seeing what Olivia’s working on because she’s always experimenting,” adds Salinas. “We both dabble in media that the other hasn’t really messed with so it’s fun to talk about the challenges and what’s exciting about those medias.”
Barattini and Salinas are the daring artists behind the Junior League of Tallahassee’s new “Project Daring” mural which will feature Welty’s quote within the design.
JLT commissioned the mural to transform the outside wall of the Lumen Technologies building at the intersection of Calhoun Street and Park Avenue. The project has garnered support from the Florida Department of State and Tallahassee Downtown Improvement Authority.
