Cedar Street Art Collective Mural

The mural on the south side of CSAC was done by local artist Tod Parkhill. It was painted on four panels and installed August 2017.  It measures 8 foot by 16 foot. At first glance, it just looks like a bunch of random objects. Upon a closer look, it becomes more obvious that the objects are painted as letters. The letters form the words “Cedar Street Art Collective. The objects chosen were inspired from items that were sold when the building housed Dicker and Deal. There is a less obvious message of “Welcome to the neighborhood” hidden in the mural as well.  Part of the design approach to the mural was to create something that was an ode to the building, but also a piece that would encourage pedestrians to stop and engage with the painting.
