This mural is a community based art project which transformed the 2,300 square foot Carlstedt’s building wall on Gaines Street into a Tallahassee nature and wildlife scene, featuring hawks, egrets, turtles, and woodpeckers. The Florida State University Department of Art Education worked in conjunction with the annual Seven Days of Opening Nights Festival and the City of Tallahassee to complete the mural in 2012. As you can see from the second shot, I had a hard time getting the entire mural into one photo. I would have had to cross a busy street with bumper to bumper traffic which would have partially blocked the mural. I plan on showing a different section of the mural each week. Today I am starting with a very pretty woodpecker. You can read more information about the mural here.
