Internationally-Known Artists to Paint Greencastle Mural
GREENCASTLE - Two internationally known mural artists have been selected for The Putnam County Mural Project. The artists, named Key Detail, will create one of Indiana’s largest murals on four large grain silos at the corner of Veterans Memorial Highway and U.S. 231 in Greencastle.
New York-based Key Detail was selected from a pool of more than 70 applicants worldwide by a six-member Putnam County Mural Project. Key Detail is made up of husband and wife duo Andrei Krautsou and Julia Yu-Baba.
Krautsou studied architecture and design in Minsk, Belarus and is currently based in New York. Key Detail has completed more than 50 large-scale murals over the past nine years all over the world. Their murals and artwork have also been featured in international magazines and books.
"We looked carefully at each proposal and the top choices were further discussed and evaluated from a wide variety of perspectives taking into account all of the feedback from the community,” said Amy Robinson, art teacher at Greencastle Middle School, and a member of the selection committee in a news release. “The thrilling part is how many proposals—from all over the world—were received and the way everyone came together around a handful of professional muralists that we felt confident could create a work of art as rich and wonderful as this community."
