Muralist Eric Grohe will come to the city of Stone Mountain to speak on Saturday, July 21, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the theater, 5384 Manor Drive, 30083.
Producer Jack Sartain, co-founder of the DeKalb Council of the Arts, announced Grohe's upcoming visit at the this week.
Grohe's three-dimensional images are created using a style called trompe l'oeil. For example, he can take the side of a building from blank bricks to a detailed scene of a lively town square. A plain wall and walk-through space at a private school is transformed to look as if it has new structural supports, complete with artistic detailing and even people reading.
According to his website, Grohe is working on a commision from Coca Cola in Atlanta.
