A virtual tour of the American Mural Project’s (AMP’s) installation progress will share with viewers what AMP is about, how it came to be, stories about the mural subjects, a summary of AMP’s current programs and activities, and what’s still to come. Although a virtual tour will not give viewers an accurate experience of the mammoth scale of this work of art that is a three-dimensional, vertical jigsaw puzzle that spans 130 feet by 50 feet and will be 2 to 5 feet deep in parts, but it will give viewers a taste, and hopefully entice them to visit AMP in Winsted, CT when that becomes possible again. The tour will be given by AMP’s executive director, Amy Wynn.
The American Mural Project (AMP) is a celebration of American ingenuity, productivity, and commitment to work. It seeks to inspire, to educate, to invite collaboration, and to reveal to people of all ages the many contributions they can make to American culture. It is intended as a tribute and a challenge. The mural exhibit, envisioned and created primarily but not solely by artist Ellen Griesedieck, together with future visitor center, are located in Winsted, Connecticut, in two former mill buildings on the state’s register of historic places.
