Fox Valley Mall has commissioned four professionally designed art installations to be created on-site at the center. The first of these will include an original expansion of the interactive “swings” portfolio by the iconic Kelsey Montague, an artist whose fame lies at the intersection of public art, interactive art and social media. Already in concept development, the mural is expected to be completed by Saturday April 20th.

Applauded by notable institutions and publications including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, The New York Times and Forbes, Montague has made a name for herself with large pen-and-ink murals loaded with smaller images and stories that entice people to talk about each piece’s meaning, interact with the art, and post pictures of their interaction on social media as Taylor Swift did with Montague’s now infamous Angel Wings mural.

The design will cover an 812-square-foot wall spanning the full height and width of the upper level of the former Carson’s interior storefront.

The art is designed to create excitement about the changes coming to Fox Valley Mall, and we invite our retailers and the community to share in that enthusiasm by watching Kelsey and her team at work April 18, 19 & 20 from 9am – 5pm, as well as a public meet & greet with the artist on April 20th from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
