#MuralMonday : This beautiful mural by @_illsol_ depicts the “Faces of West Tampa” and honors the region’s diverse history. Just inaugurated into the community over the weekend, you can find this mural at Salcines Park in West Tampa 💙
Students may have had their weekend fun in the snow, but for many of our College students, it’s also EXAM WEEK. 😱
Best of luck, students!
We’re loving this @usc_upstate 50th anniversary mural by @bannanblasko, on the side of @arworkshopspartanburg & @artlounge1. #muralmonday#collegetown
It's done! A little hard to capture last night with the lighting not yet in place and equipment in the way, but you get the idea! My arms and legs are so sore and skin a little green 😅 Those fades were pretty challenging, especially the ones larger than myself (central wall is about 9.5' tall, total ceiling height 18.5'). It was fun working on it though and I couldn't have asked for a more awesome client. Can't wait to come back when @resetsocial.cafe has opened!
The Berwyn Public Arts Initiative was set up to put up murals throughout the suburban city. Several are located not far from the train tracks near Stanley and Windsor Streets. According to its website, the BPAI “is a community-driven effort that brings together businesses, building owners, artists and community organizations to install murals, sculptural objects and pop-up galleries.” Future plans from @berwynpublicart include putting up sculptures along the BNSF train platforms. One mural painted earlier this year by Collin van der Sluijs sits in Edward A. Karasek Park, named after the longtime Berwyn commissioner. The mural features an array of plants and flowers native to Illinois. Sitting underneath the mural are some of those same native plants. 📷@yolandanews #MuralMonday#Berwyn#ChicagoSuburbs#BerwynMurals#NativePlants#PublicArt#IllinoisPublicArt#IllinoisNativePlants#BerwynPublicArtInitiative#collinvandersluijs
Located on the eastern side of the Lao Buddhist Temple, December’s #muralmonday includes several well known temples in Laos. 🇱🇦 In the first photo, the temple on the left is Pha That Luang, which translates to “Golden Stupa.” A stupa is a dome-shaped structure erected as a Buddhist shrine. They often contain relics and are used as a place of meditation. A symbol of Lao nationalism and located in Vientiane, the Golden Stupa is said to contain a relic of Lord Buddha’s breastbone.
The oldest Hindu temple in Laos, Vat Phou, is depicted on the right side of the first photo. It is more than 1000 years old and, according to the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, “shaped to express the Hindu vision of the relationship between nature and humanity.” Another stupa is depicted in the second photo. This is the That Pathum, which translates to “Lotus Stupa.” However, it is more commonly known by its nickname: the “Watermelon Stupa” (That Makmo), because the shape resembles a watermelon.

Title: Mirrored Robots
Location: 1st St. and Mountain Rd.
"Mirrored Robots" touches on ideas of camouflage, self-recognition and adaptive mimicry as they relate to machines, conveying the understanding that technology infiltrates life to such a degree that it becomes necessary for survival and identity.
