PRAIRIE

Prairie is a collaborative mural by Erik Burke and Gaia which reflects our local natural habitat. This beautiful mural is located at 300 N. Main St in the parking lot of First Citizens Bank.

BODIES IN MOTION

This skillfully layered mural is also a collaborative effort between Gaia and Erik Burke. It is located at 222 N. Main St. This building is home to a fitness center, Snap Fitness, so this energetic mural is a perfect fit.

SUMMER 2021 MURAL ARTISTS

We were fortunate enough to bring two world-renowned artists to Charles City to create the first two murals for the project, Gaia and Erik Burke. Gaia is an artist who has been named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 in Art and Style list, has been a Fullbright beneficiary, and has work on display on all six habitable continents. Erik Burke has worked throughout the United States as well as South America, Asia, and Europe.

If you're interested in having a building included in Town of Colors or would like to help sponsor more murals please contact the Charles City Arts Center.
