Escuchela, la ciudad respirando. (Listen, the city breathes) – Mural artist Mauricio Ramirez pulls inspiration by listening to conversations with locals in the community. Respiration features local business owners and community members that represent the diverse ethnic background that make up Edgewater. Mauricio presents the artwork in a technique called “lo-poly” which gives the illusion of a 3D portrait through meticulously placed and colored geometric shapes. The mural works well when viewing from a distance but can also translate to abstract imagery up-close.

Artist Molly Z set out to weave together multiple narratives in her mural. In thinking about the Edgewater Community and what is already at work, she wanted to align with the mission of making the neighborhood more “living” using nature-inspired imagery. The idea of creating a mural that represented a sense of “nurturing” seemed fitting because both the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce and Green Element Resale provide and care for their community in unique ways.
