Aurora Street Mural
A mural was painted directly on the pavement of a street.
It was two amazing weekends of painting, 350 volunteers, 180 gallons of paint and tons of fun!
A two-block street mural is now one of the biggest murals in Colorado!

The main elements of the mural design are airplanes and nature. The theme of aviation is dictated by the location of the mural: Stanley Aviation and Old Denver airport were right around the corner. Plants and flowers symbolize growth and development and represent Aurora’s many parks and open spaces. Read more about mural design here>
The street mural was painted during two weekends. One block each weekend.

This mural was the first street mural in Aurora. It received a lot of media attention and was very well received by the public. After the mural was finished I received a Mayoral Proclamation from Aurora’s mayor Hogan.
