Billboard project goes live

Friday morning, people wandering in downtown will have the chance to watch some art in action.

Jesse Pierpoint, and artist and creative director for Seven2 in Spokane, will be live-painting a billboard at 301 W. Main on Friday (today) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The project, by Boom Creative and Global Credit Union, is part of the CU’s Global Citizen campaign; Pierpoint will be painting his interpretation of “legacy” on the 10-by-23-foot billboard, while perched atop a three-story scissor lift.

Down below, meanwhile, there’ll be a bit of a party. Local DJs Twin Towers will provide the music, and food will be available for sale from the Bistro Box food truck.
