Walkman-Outside the Box Mural
TITLE: Walkman-Outside the Box Mural
ARTIST: Annie Stout
ABOUT: The Midland Area Community Foundation selected eight artists to paint downtown Midland utility boxes in a move to beautify the downtown space and give the community an artistic voice. Artist Annie Stout gave an artist statement for the project, "Annie Stout is an artist and graphic designer based in Midland, MI. She is a multi-passionate creative who works with a wide variety of mediums. Her love of art stems from a compulsive need to create. Annie believes that creating is a cathartic practice that everyone can benefit from. A jack of all trades, Annie is still always looking to learn new skills and try new techniques. She has owned and operated Paper Heart Design since 2008, where she specializes in small business branding as a graphic designer, in addition to creativity coaching services, writing for her creative living blog, and creating fine art. Though she frequently works in the digital world of art, she still very much loves to paint, build, and teach art in analog ways. Her goal as an artist is to highlight beauty in the ordinary, and to create conversations that lead to connection and community."
