The Urban Studio Mural finds a home on the 14th Street Mall

A Vision Realized

If you happened to visit the Old North Farmer's Market last Saturday morning, you probably noticed a curious pile of colorful wooden pieces next to a plywood wall with graffiti. If you come next Saturday, you will see a vibrant mural masterpiece in its place! Nearly 150 individual wooden pieces were originally painted by St. Louis youth at Art Outside last September. With the help of market-goers young and old, we re-assembled the mural like a big puzzle during the farmers' market to reveal a vibrant image representing the regrowth and revitalization of our near-north side community. Join us next Saturday, 9am-1pm, at the farmers' market to see this gorgeous mural for yourself! The market is located across from Crown Candy Kitchen at the corner of St. Louis Avenue and 14th Street.
