The Hidden Gem
Commissioned by the Arts Council of Wilmington, North Carolina, this mural serves as the "last piece" of a newly renovated historic space in the heart of downtown Wilmington and also as downtown's first large scale mural. Originally the site for North Carolina's first movie theater, Bijou Park is now a connecting corridor linking their Main Street to the river front and a convenient, beautiful respite from the city's hustle and bustle. The narrative pays homage to the movie theater while highlighting North Carolina's natural "jewels" (Bijou means small, precious jewel), and offers a nod to this pocket park as downtown's newest "hidden gem."  This massive piece had a community component in which over 500 people helped paint the mural over the course of a weekend.
