What's a Co-op Without a Mural?
The Magnolia Street side of New Leaf Market is going green, with paint that is. The Co-op will be the first building on Lafayette Street to be artistically transformed into a green space.
The Parkway District Merchants Guild, of which New Leaf Market is a member, is seeking artists to develop mural art, provide oversight to community painters, and to assist in overall project coordination for a series of murals to be painted on the exterior walls of the Parkway Shopping Center: Lafayette Street side.
The mural is to reflect the concept of "greening" our district with art; To turn the Parkway District corridor into a "greenway" made up of our existing century oaks, as well as artwork. Park-like images, forests and pathways are to be central themes of the project.
