The Liberty Scroll project was made possible by a generous grant of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation, Community Building Arts Initiative.

Scroll Apparatus by Bill Durovchic

The 80′ canvas was wrapped on this wooden apparatus built by innovative local artist Bill Durovchic. Each artist could only see 6″ of the previous painting, and had to integrate that 6″ into their own painting. None of the artists saw any of the other work until it was unveiled at the opening reception.
