Have you seen the latest mural in South End? This mural takes top honors in terms of its size…its huge! John, Holli and the rest of the team at Healthy Home Market came up with a terrific idea to convert an otherwise blank and boring side of their builiding into an engaging community art project.
They commissioned local mural artist Frank Haas to create “The Road To A Healthy Home” as a way to portray the evolution of Charlotte from a rural farming community to a metropolitan city. Healthy Home Market commissioned the mural to draw attention to local farm products and their importance in the past and present. They also wanted to create a lasting piece of artwork that will contribute to the South End Community. There is a website dedicated to the mural at www.southendmural.com with more details and lots of pictures of the progress.
The official dedication was this past Saturday. City Council member Patsy Kinsey and Healthy Home Market founder Jerry York were on hand for the ribbon cutting. Below are a few pictures from the ceremony and the progress from boring wall to impressive mural!
