Au programme

I am a working artist and muralist in Poughkeepsie NY and I created this unique guided walking tour of Public Art in Poughkeepsie. This leisurely two hour tour includes over 50 indoor and outdoor historic and contemporary murals, sculptures, monuments and street art. The tour highlights include several historic New Deal era murals in the main Post Office, large scale contemporary murals, a Vietnam War memorial and one sculpture park. You will marvel at the grand 30 foot tall rotunda-atrium mural that illustrates the history of printing and journalism from the early Renaissance to 1942, commissioned by FDR. As an active muralist the tour includes several of my large scale murals to which I can offer a unique perspective on the mural making process.

I started giving this tour in 2007 and has been very popular. I have been living in Poughkeepsie for 20 years and am very familiar with its history both past and present. I have lectured on murals and street art at several public venues and I am very active in the arts community of the entire Hudson Valley. The tour has been featured in several newpapers and magazines as well as Time Warner Cable TV.

I would highly recommend this art tour for anyone. Franc is an excellent guide with interesting stories about the area, the history and the art work. We even met another artist by chance and Franc went out of his way to make introductions. We learned more than expected and had an amazing day.

The reason I chose "magical location" is that Franc made it magical. He was so informed about all of the art and he came out on a terribly hot day just for me. I am so incredibly lucky to have had this experience. Franc is obviously a gifted artist, which you can tell by the murals he has painted. But not all artists are able to relate their inner selves to others, and hardly any can make that into a tour. Franc even related the murals he presented to cave man art, which was a great point! People have been doing murals since they have inhabited the earth, and Franc illuminated all the ways humans have accomplished this. Franc is a fascinating, multidimensional individual with a lot to share. This tour is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I am coming back with my friends and also referring people. I could only get away for a couple of days, but Franc brought me into a different world. I'm so grateful for this experience.
