Hops Splash

A concept image of Kendall Doub's Hops Splash Community Mural, to be painted on the side of The Good Shepherds Brewing Co. in Auburn June 23-24.

Art for Auburn has announced its next downtown project.

The public art collective will create a painted mural depicting hops and wheat on the William Street wall of The Good Shepherds Brewing Co. later this month.

Kendall Doub, of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, designed the mural. A professional artist and graphic designer, Doub has worked on packaging, logo and branding for John Deere, Journeys and more. He was brought aboard the Good Shepherds project by Art for Auburn Project Manager Jesse Kline.

Volunteers are sought to help paint the Hops Splash Community Mural from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, June 23 and 24 (unless there are long periods of heavy rain). Volunteers can come for any length of time, and are encouraged to wear work clothing. No prior experience is necessary, and all materials and instruction will be provided. Sheet pizzas will be provided by Angelo's. 

The Good Shepherds Brewing Co. is located at 132 Genesee St., the former home of PBJ on the Corner. Brewer and owner Garrett Shepherd opened in the space in March after three years in his first location on Loop Road.

"We are happy to partner on this public art installation, to add to the growing base of Auburn’s Art Trail stops," Shepherd said in a news release. "This project is yet another example of Downtown Auburn BID’s continued involvement in the community, and its ability to collaborate with multiple agencies. I applaud their efforts to engage our residents by working side-by-side with artists."

The project is supported by a Finger Lakes Community Arts Grant, as well as the BID and Good Shepherds. Brushes were donated by Real Deals.
