ARTIST STATEMENT:
"As a person who has lived in Marshalltown for years, I understand why it’s so easy to argue that the CBD is dull. The city lacks greenery and most of the buildings tend to be some variant of beige. There just isn’t much to revel over, at a first glance. 

 

What this perspective ignores, however, is the role that the people who interact with the city, whether on a daily basis or as guest over the weekend, play. People inject energy, colour and life into the city. 

They do for the CBD what the addition of nature does for high ranking global cities, this mural is a celebration of that."
