UT Arlington ASCE Concrete Canoe Race Results

April 15, 2018
The group of UT Arlington American Society of Civil Engineers students and staff were so welcoming to us as spectators near College Station yesterday. They definitely won the most spirited award and the PRAYER warrior award as seen in the attached….

I thank God the race was called off and no one was in harms way with the windy weather conditions that destined most or all of the boats to take on water as it was clear nothing designed for speed would race with those sized waves!
Their CONCRETE canoe DID pass the float test, but the first boat to race did not end well at all and served as the guinea pig amid those white caps….to watch those boys from that other college swim trying to retrieve the boat to shore was gut wrenching.
It was a beautifully designed canoe and we need to get it in Lake Arlington and film her going!!!!

AT&T Please Consider This Mural for Your Community Contribution to the Arlington Arts

March 3, 2018

In an artist call for a downtown mural in Arlington  TX, my resume is here, http://bit.ly/2ixwyRV. I will not be entering in the contest since your building is unavailable I am told for a mural consideration, and if this idea does fit other buildings available, the Cafe platform doesn’t like android pixels and I can’t upload to them.

My name is Kim Feil and as a volunteer for the arts in Arlington since 2003, I have painted one of two downtown Local Color venues with the UTA student derived idea of the prism of warm pastel colors.

I so want to be a part of the rebirth of the Local Color of light and officially donate this idea to AT&T should they consider to undertake painting a mural as their contribution to our Downtown Revitalization Plan.

In 2010 I started begging for our murals to be spared…

I saved some onion skin paper for a couple of decades (yep) and finally got to use it when I saw the artists call (without realizing your building was off limits). I taped the onion skin to my laptop yesterday and traced out your building next to the Levitt that I’ve been wanting to paint for almost a decade.

I added the sun and some random colors and the ‘DREAM’ theme….(although windows may not be able to have words on them…it symbolizes my dream to have your building painted).

And a couple of hours later, the first eyeballed draft (meaning the prisms have not yet been mathematically spaced thereof deriving from the sun)…..came to life albeit only on paper……….muralc

AT&T can select any color scheme and their designated crew and if needed I will help try to find crowdfunding for this project as $1,000 has been allotted for the artists call and this project is significantly more expensive.

One can only dream and be persistent..like me. Even though I am afraid of heights, I have proven to be a real trouper and deliver-er of goods like the UTA Student Lutheran Building I personally hand brushed painted (not sprayed) as a donation of my time. Now that I am almost 56 years old I know that I would be a liability up on some scaffolding…so I if asked to do it myself…I just might…but you’d be better off hiring professional painters.

It was truly a labor of love to be up so high. And so it is with being dedicated to a cause for an Arlington Local Color dream.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider allowing me to crowdfund this mural idea that is a collaboration of UT Arlington students, Local Color (Mark Joeckel) and myself (a humble musician and not a self-proclaimed artist). It is within your power to allow Arlington residents to bask in the glory of a finished mural at your legacy building that is a landmark for our Arlington Downtown.
