Live performances by artist Trey Speegle from TWYLA
Live performances by artist Trey Speegle from TWYLA will offer fairgoers the chance to paint by numbers with the artist, who will create a large-scale mural that when completed asks the question, “What Kind of World Do You Want?” The American painter and published author will establish a type of visual vocabulary that is ironically ambiguous, drawing inspiration from aspects of pop-culture that parallel Andy Warhol’s pop art style to generate work with its pulse on contemporary society.
