Sometimes you need a breather.  

 
Living Walls, the five-year-old organization responsible for more than 100 murals in Atlanta, will sit out 2015.
The organization announced today that this year will be one of “reflection and strategic planning . . . to give our executive director, board and volunteer staff the space to learn from other organizations doing similar work and focus on community engagement, impact goals, and fundraising.”

During this time executive director Monica Campana will work under curator Pedro Alonzo and executive director Jane Golden at the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, which has inaugurated a city-wide project called Open Source

 
Flux Projects took 2014 off and came back strong with a Nick Cave commission. It will be interesting to see what comes of Campana’s sabbatical.
