Overview

This entrance mural to the North Boulder (NoBo) Arts District features the topography of the Boulder foothills running down the rocky mountains and meeting the great plains. There is a “You Are Here” pin in the image, at the front of the building, showing the building's location in the map itself.

Goals

The goal for this piece was to serve as an entrance mural to the North Boulder Arts District, located at the south end of the district. The bright colors and interesting shapes grab peoples attention, and it is impossible to miss while driving on the main thoroughfare in the district.

Process

The design was submitted for a public vote/committee process. Once it was selected, there was some back and forth between the artist and the NoBo bourd of directors on the colors for the final product
