“Jarred Barr, 11, of Chesterfield County recruited Trask for his own project, collecting sketches from outdoor mural painters in the G40 Art Summit last month and the RVA Street Art Festival.
“I’ve been a big fan for a long time,” Jarred said. “I’ve seen his murals. I really like them. I thought it would be cool to meet him.”
Jarred’s mother, Stephanie Barr, who teaches children’s art classes at the Petersburg Area Art League, said she and her husband had decided to foster Jarred’s interest in street art, “not to make it a forbidden fruit, but to engage him in positive ways.”
