During the event, Pearblossom resident Christopher Minsal will create a new mural on the west end of the PTC parking lot using recycled paint and other materials. 

Minsal serves on several local art committees and has helped to spark an art movement along with other artists in the South Antelope Valley. Some of his works may be found on murals along Pearblossom Highway and inside buildings within the Keppel School District. Additionally, he works on museum quality installations of educational, mazes, games and labyrinths in institutions and science centers across the nation with Dave Phillips’ company, A-MAZE-D.

“Chris has a deep love for his community and volunteers with frequency, always with the goal to influence young and old minds through the power of art,” said Palmdale’s Public Art Coordinator George Davis.
