Hand Painted Metal
By local artist Tim Adams
“Free Bird” is a piece that reflects an interperation of the song, Free Bird. As the bird themselves make up the actual notes of the song, represents staying strong following a tragedy. Following the 2008 floods, this piece illustrates Cedar Rapids. Tim Adams has said, “I’m very pleased to be able to contribute to the Murals & More Project in Cedar Rapids! Public Art allows people of all walks of life to interact with art on a daily basis. Public Art also enhances the quality of all of our lives and frees our imaginations to soar.”
To see the mural yourself, head to 3rd St in downtown Cedar Rapids between 4h & 5th Ave.
