Stickum Up!

Borbay is one of the artists participating in the temporary mural exhibition, “Stickum Up.” His mural, “The Good, The Bad, and The Fanelli’s,” places Western movie icon Clint Eastwood outside an iconic Manhattan restaurant and bar. It will hang all summer long on the side of Pearl Street Market.

Jackson Hole Public Art is back with another iteration of its Instagram-friendly Stickum Up! temporary mural project.

The group just released a list of the 17 artists who are contributing to the mural artwork. Haley Badenhop, Borbay, Cal Brackin, Natalie Connell, Liz Forelle, Greta Gretzinger, Kelly Halpin, Arturo Hernandez, Jina Kim, Coral Pitman Miller, Mike Piggott, Miranda Raposa, Samantha Ritchie, Kay Stratman, Mariela Santelices and Boughton Walden round out this year's class of artists.

The artist Borbay is participating in Stickum Up! for the second year in a row, though this is the first time the mural project has coincided with Old West Days. He is known around Jackson for his work combining images of the Old West with contemporary neon scenes, and his contribution to Stickum Up! this year depicts Clint Eastwood in "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" with Manhattan's Fanelli Cafe in the backdrop.

"Public art turns the world around us into a canvas, and it let's people see what they see everyday in a completely different perspective." Borbay said. "We have so many incredible artists doing public art here, and Jackson Hole Public Art really transforms the space that could otherwise feel a bit sterile."

The mural images will be wheat pasted to the sides of buildings all over downtown Jackson on May 24 to coincide with the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce's Old West Days festival and will stay up until September 20.
