TJ Blair (Project Manager): "We worked closely with the Mosaic Market Business Improvement Zone to create these Murals for the Higgins Underpass. The majority of the artistic concept revolved around blending historic sights in and around Main street with the diverse commerce activity in the neighborhood. This was one of my favorite projects to work on as these Murals were being installed in the underpass so close to our home @ 109 Higgins Ave. Its always great when you're get an opportunity to contribute to a neighborhood beautification project in your own neighborhood! Due to the scale of the project, we were able to employ about 9 individual artists in total to work on the Murals. The diversity of painting styles are vast, which I think is a great metaphor for the people and businesses that are involved with the Mosaic Market BIZ."
