at the Hunt-Cavanagh Gallery
Hunt-Cavanagh Hall, East Campus, Providence College
Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Peter Tigler, a mural artist based in Santa Monica, CA, creates large-scale public works aimed at engaging audiences from all walks of life in making/ performing art. He designed a mural for Providence College's Sport-Art initiative in 2012 that coordinated the efforts of PC students, artists, athletes, alumni, and other community participants in a collaborative painting process connecting the themes of art, sport, gender, and identity. Returning this fall for St. Dominic's weekend and the launch of PC's Next Century Campaign, Tigler will lead a new mural project highlighting the College's liberal arts mission, community, education, and spirituality.
