COMAG 2016

In 2016, Kellen Bateham (founder of The Peoples’ Forge Project) led a community art project that was designed by Bill Hope and built by the Central Oregon Metal Artists’ Guild (COMAG). The event was powerful for all involved and left such an impression on the community that Kellen just had to do it again. Over 500 people participated in the mural Love Lost, Love Found which is currently displayed on Tin Pan Alley in downtown Bend, Oregon.  This project was made possible by the generosity of Local Businesses and Artists who donated their time and money towards forging a stronger, more beautiful community together.
