The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota boasts some amazing performances while being one of the most iconic buildings in the metro area of the Twin Cities. It was a true honor to paint a mural on the 8th floor. The 8th floor houses multi-purpose rooms for everything from meetings to conferences to performance practice spaces. The mural brings a life to what was considered a dull hallway.
The mighty river flows just outside the Guthrie's Milling-District walls. The mural's concept stems from the Mississippi river and depicts the flow of a small spring to the current of a river to a body of water large enough to span a bridge across. Throughout the mural are floating leaves and other Guthrie-esque icons. The negative space at the end (right side) of the mural depicts the wing of an eagle, which Mr. Guthrie was known to be nicknamed.
