If you’ve driven down 15th Street these past 2 weeks, you’ve probably noticed the latest addition to the arts district: a colorful mural on the wall of Georgia’s Farmers’ Market.
The mural, a product of the Downtown Mural Project http://www.planomural.com/, uses visual art to celebrate Plano’s rich history by incorporating historical elements inspired by Plano’s past. Each of the mural’s five columns is a different color and focuses on elements from historic photos of Plano, submitted by residents earlier this year.
This is the first of three murals to be painted in Downtown Plano this year. Local artist Will Heron is the mural’s designer. He has designed and worked on several other murals in the DFW area since founding the art collective WHERON – http://www.wheronart.com/.
If you haven’t already had a chance, head to downtown to see this new piece of art for yourself!
Don’t miss it at the August 10th Art & Wine Walk – 2nd Thursday of the Month 5-9:15 pm. For Tickets see http://www.visitdowntownplano.com/winewalk/?mc_cid=2ce68f77e6&mc_eid=3f53ac9516
