Recently, we asked Cedar Rapids residents, business owners, and leaders why they love Murals & More. The first person to respond was Casey Prince, Executive Director of Theatre Cedar Rapids. His answer, shown below, is what you may expect from a theatre guy; full of enthusiasm, wit, and a bit of character.
Casey said: “Why I love Murals & More? Well it is because it embodies the idea that the experience of our city is about much more than just getting from point A to point B. The journey between those two points gets at the very fabric of our community and its history and culture. The fact that Murals & More has found a way to start connecting those dots on our community’s map by engaging artists—both student and professional—makes their projects even more exciting. All you have to do is see a before-and-after picture of the first mural installation location to immediately understand just how dynamically our city will be changed by these artist installations. Better yet, get a glimpse of a student artist’s face as they look up at their creation now proudly hanging as a banner on Third Street and you’ll realize the brilliant benefit that Murals & More is now providing the community at large.”
