Painting The Town: Students From The School of Architecture at Taliesin

As part of a community revitalization effort called “Paint the Town,” Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum and Globe-Miami businesses hosted students from The School of Architecture at Taliesin, formerly Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, to facilitate an ambitious and creative outdoor mural project.

Over two days, April 29th and 30th 2016, public spaces were transformed with beautiful large paintings on sides of buildings, meant to beckon and welcome visitors driving along Route 60. 150-plus volunteers from the architecture school and the Globe-Miami area assisted. The architecture students and their instructors researched, completed and documented the murals and approved buildings with visual maps written materials detailing project goals and outcomes.

On January 21st 2017, School of Architecture at Taliesin students visited Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum for a meet and greet about thus and other projects. An accompanying exhibit can be viewed at Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum just off the lobby. The display includes Taliesin’s related community-oriented projects, such as “Off 66,” a look at the state of former-boomtown architecture and community near the famous highway.

Featured earlier this year in the Legends Of Rock Exhibition by photographer Phil Nicholls (philnicholls.co.uk) alongside his iconic images of Amy Winehouse, Björk, The Prodigy and Courtney Love, to name a few, McQuaid has spent the past seven years touring virtually nonstop on both sides of the Atlantic, earning critical accolades along the way.

Of one of her concerts last autumn, Huffington Post Contributor Gregory Weinkauf wrote: “Finding treasure feels great, and such is the case with musician Sarah McQuaid. … I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever. One voice, one guitar, and the wondrous reminder of the magic of music. Sarah has the gift.”

His review of Sarah’s musical artistry and album Walking Into White is poetic, heartfelt praise.

Sarah’s autumn 2016 outing will be her final US tour before she takes a twelve-month break from the road in 2017 to focus her energies on writing and recording a fifth solo album, as well as penning a sequel to The Irish DADGAD Guitar Book, the popular tutor she authored on the alternative guitar tuning she uses exclusively.

“I’d like to do a follow-up book that focuses on song accompaniment and that demonstrates the versatility of DADGAD,” Sarah explains. “A lot of people think of it as a specifically ‘Celtic’ tuning, but I write all my songs in DADGAD, and it’s great for all sorts of different genres, from blues to classical music to rock ’n’ roll.”

“I’m also very excited about the next album – I don’t want say too much just yet, cos I’m afraid I’ll jinx it if I do, but if all goes according to plan I’ll have a pretty major piece of news about that very soon!”
