Enormous, colorful flowers will soon spring from the walls at a new complex rising from Equality Park in Wilton Manors, thanks to support from the Community Foundation of Broward.
Artist Steven Teller has been picked to create the nearly 3,000-square-foot mural that will stretch across the facade of The Pride Center and Residences at Equality Park.
Plans call for Teller to create artwork that will be photographed and printed on large metal sheets that will be installed on the walls of a new affordable housing complex for seniors, rising off Dixie Highway.
The mural will make Equality Park even more of a community destination, helping to unite and inspire local residents. It furthers the Community Foundation’s commitment to support the arts and to champion equality and inclusion for LGBTQ residents.
The mural is made possible by Fundholders at the Community Foundation who invest in Art of Community – philanthropy that supports the power of the arts to transform Broward and bring residents together.
“This mural highlights the power of Art of Community to produce art in an engaging way that revitalizes the community,” said Sheri Brown, Foundation Vice President of Community Impact. “We are thankful to our Fundholders who made the grant possible.”
Support for The Murals at Equality Park project comes from the following Funds at the Community Foundation of Broward:
Brogan Family Fund
Frederick W. Jaqua Fund
Helen A. Chadwick Fund
Elizabeth Ryan Fund
