Greensboro is getting a new mural downtown at Hamburger Square. The artist can be seen on the hydraulic lift, at left, bringing her artwork to life. Artist, singer/songwriter, Kim Kennedy, knew the minute she saw this wall between M'Coul's Public House and Design Archives that she wanted to paint a mural here. Her Kickstart Campaign successfully raised over $4,000 to help bring the 25' x 50' mural to life. It features Kim's friend, and area musician, Joey Barnes.
Kim has already made considerably more progress on this mural than when we took these photos a couple of weeks ago. She has been working 8-11 hour days on the project-- when the weather and her music commitments permit. At first, there were concerns that the artist painting this mural should be from Greensboro; however, her vision for the space fit perfectly with what the owners of the building were looking for. We think you will be pleased.
