New Street Mural Graces Intersection of N. 14th & Warren

Under the leadership of Lucas Rouggly, staff from LOVEtheLOU organized the painting of a street mural at the intersection of N. 14th Street and Warren Street this past weekend. The costs related to the project were covered by Pursuit Communities.  The colorful image of a fleur-de-lis fills the intersection just south of the recently redeveloped buildings at Crown Square.

The wording around the edges, written by Lucas Rouggly, reads:  ”My city is a Mother and I am her child.  Her greatness is not found in the size of her monument but in the lives she harbors underneath.  Her children are like a colorful mural, and they define her.  When they come together, she is pleased.  I love my Mother and I will look after her.”

Design credits go to artists Dexter Silvers and Elysia King.

This intersection mural is the first of seven that the group has planned, leading from Old North to the loft district downtown.  Come on by to take a look!
