Love Endures mural

A variety of historic buildings and people in neighborhood settings are painted on a trash enclosure.

Story: This one was a mural mystery. Not much information was available about these murals painted on plywood panels other than the names of the artists. But through a conversation with artist and muralist Curtis King, a little bit of history made things clearer. These panels were originally painted by King and others for a community meeting space in Belmont. The panels were removed and re-installed as the trash enclosures for Sweet Lew’s Barbeque. King is an educator and muralist with murals in Uptown and the West Side.


Key Formal Elements:

·     Heavy use of outline around figures and shapes


Make the Connection: The artists highlight area businesses, icons, and heritage. Look for the old Charlotte trolley, hornet’s recalling the reputation of Charlotte during the American Revolution, the historic railroad supports, and other items that celebrate community.
