Mural Project “The Four Graces” for the Garrison Street Underpass in Lakewood

Mural Project “The Four Graces” for the Garrison Street Underpass in Lakewood

My last mural project in 2016 is in progress! It is a four piece mural for the city of Lakewood, Colorado, the place I now call home. The mural will be installed in niches of the Garrison street and Highway 6 underpass in the end of December.

This was the original design for the project. The four piece mural represents the four seasons of the year with four women of different ethnicities.

The blooming summer is featuring a face of a Hispanic woman in a shape of the sun, inspired by traditional Mexican wall art. This piece introduces many summer activities: kayaking, bicycling, cars and trailer camping. There are few historic eateries of Lakewood here: Casa Bonita and Davie’s Chuck Wagon diner and lots of flowers including  the state flower: Rocky Mountain Columbine.

The fall season is shown with an African-American woman. This piece acquaints us with the agricultural history of Lakewood, its farms, cottages, crops and harvests.

Winter season is featuring a Native American woman from The Cheyenne tribe in traditional clothing. Also, this piece includes the Western line of the light rail, a train system that connects Denver metro area, the Rocky Mountains and it’s winter attractions: skiing, snowbording and horseback riding.
