Community Resilience


Vista 360° , in collaboration with Land Art Generator, is proposing to create a community art & culture project = a Solar Mural, in Jackson.

With the advent of solar panel customization, art in public space stands ready for a revolution. Solar Mural® artworks generate significant renewable energy, celebrate local culture, provide new opportunities for artists and spark inspiration for community resilience.

WHAT:
Designing and creating a solar mural that will provide power to light a public facility in Teton County. The mural can be moved from time to time to various locations.

WHY?:
Vista360° is a 501c3 non-profit gateway for supporting mountain communities and protecting mountain places. Education about alternative energy and ecological awareness, delivered through creative fun, is part of a thriving, positive mountain culture.

Land Art Generator is an innovative and cross-cutting organization that brings together renewable energy and public art in a way that elevates both. This mural is a wonderful way to bring their global creative expertise to Jackson — The LAGI team will provide assistance in several ways:

  • Identify ideal sites and mural orientation

  • Identify appropriate solar technology

  • Facilitate the design process

  • Provide detailed fabrication drawings

  • Coordinate fabrication and installation

Let's bring a Solar Mural® artwork to our community!

Three in One.

Technology. Creativity. Renewable Energy.

Creativity is a core aspect of mountain culture. We are problem solvers. We are the kind of folks that will roll-up our sleeves and fix things. This community innovation sparks inspiration for new solutions.
