Boulder Vapor House Hosts: The Hill Block Party ft. William Thompson

Visit the Murals at the Skatepark in Lionshead, Vail, Colorado

William Thompson’s evolution of skateboarding mural on the west facing wall of the skatepark.

VAIL — Earlier this summer, the town of Vail’s Art in Public Places invited four local artists to paint large murals on the exterior of the skatepark in Lionshead. Not only did this public art project enhance the skatepark’s appearance, it provided a canvas for professional artists to showcase the evolution of street art.

The skatepark is scheduled to be dismantled on Sept. 30, but in the meantime, Art in Public Places is inviting the public to enjoy the paintings before the artwork is placed in storage for the winter.

The four local artists who created the murals were Michael Friedberg, Prent Milhoan, William Thompson and Shen.

This piece is one of many from my series of ballpoint pen drawings. This process takes months to complete. This piece was designed with the sole purpose of giving the viewer an insight into the creative processes taking place within an artist’s mind. In this piece, I really want to entertain the viewer and take them on an artistic, thought provoking adventure.  Extraordinary, or “out of the ordinary” is the best way I can describe this piece.  It takes familiar subjects, happenings, and designs and puts them into a context that would otherwise never have been seen or thought of.

The way women are portrayed in the media today has really changed our perspectives of what ‘beauty’ is.  It is not natural for women to wear a pound of makeup and have plastic features.  This piece was intended to show the natural beauty of the female face alongside the natural beauty of water.  It shows that both are beautiful in their natural states.

Artists Paint Legendary Mural

Beyond the obvious draw of tacos and tequila, one of TJ’s most amazing features is the back wall mural, crafted by local artists Laura McGowan and William Thompson. While McGowan is more of a detail-oriented realist painter, Thompson is well-versed in street art. The two teamed up to paint what has become known as a symbol of generational movement—showing the impact of youth political and social involvements through the decades.
