Since 2014, the Northwood Village Mural Project have completed murals 2 murals in West Palm Beach. The murals are painted by Craig McInnis at 2417 Spruce Ave and Eduardo Mendieta at 441 25th Street.  The CRA has helped get this project off the ground, but they will need more funding to keep this Mural Project going and cover the neighborhood with beautiful murals. They are looking for local businesses to also help by sponsoring murals, donating exterior wall space, and funding. The community can also help with fundraising and support.

Initially there will be 4-5 murals painted on buildings located on Northwood Road, Spruce Avenue and 25th Street. The goal is to beautify and bring more vitality to the neighborhood. Each mural will be painted by a different artist.  Muralist Amanda Valdes will begin her mural at 444 25th Street in early 2015. Other artists are waiting for approval of their designs before work can begin. If you are artist, property owner or anyone interested in participating message the project here.

Public Art at Fire Rescue Station #3 in Northwood

Visiting Fire Rescue Station #3 in Northwood for a discussion of the Parks Master Plan, we discovered the public art:   architectural establishments of the station.  Mosaics, tile murals and relief carving are types of public art that have been a part of Mediterranean cultures for thousands of years.  These great traditions from the Babylonians to the Romans to the Spanish Moors influenced the architecture in Palm Beach County since the early 20th century.

On the ground before the community room, a latin phrase is written that means:  FROM MANY PEOPLES STRENGTH.
