Artist Profile: Lindsay Falsone
Meet Lindsay Falsone. She is a fine artist specializing in a variety of mediums, including public street art and fabric wall banners. Her style is bold, clean, and instantly recognizable. We asked Lindsay a couple of questions about her public projects and where she sees art headed in Downtown Grand Junction.
Q: Why is public art important for the community?
A: I believe public art highlights a collective interest of the community and embraces the individual artists. It adds some identity and individualism to local life.
Q: Why is public art important to you?
A: I want to make people feel welcome and at home in a Grand Junction. I think it opens up a space for people to start a new conversation and interact with people and businesses in a way they might not have otherwise.
Q: How did you get involved in murals? Anything about that medium you particularly enjoy?
A: I’m still very new to murals, but I have been working as an artist for a long time and have recently decided to dabble in larger scale work. So far it’s been great! I hope to do more in the future.
Q: What’s your next big project?
A: I have a few people asking for murals at the moment- but my gears are currently shifting back to large scale banner work until the beginning of the year. Once springs hits, I will have two or three new murals to start!
Q: What’s most exciting to you about the art community in Grand Junction?
A: I love seeing youth and diversity in our art community. I’m excited to see what new art we get in the valley over the next few years. The more murals we start, the more will be commissioned. I hope this whole town is covered one day.
Q: How can people stay in touch / follow you?
A: Currently my art is viewable on my Instagram @lindsayfalsoneillustration
Q: Where can people see your work? List of public art pieces.
A: My wolf and bison piece is on the south facing wall in the Museum of the West parking lot, 5th Street and Ute Avenue. My Evening primrose (part of the Grown in the Desert mural) is in the breezeway between Main Street and the parking garage.
