Rise Into Yourself

Kelly Murphy
Materials: Exterior latex paint on aluminum siding

Artist Statement:

The purpose of this mural is to bring color and character to Old Town Mankato as well as visually represent the message of courage, strength, triumph, and healing by offering two beacons of light shown on the building as two women, one holding the sun and one holding the moon. I call these women the Guardians and they represent the triumph of overcoming hard things. The two magnificent light sources illuminate these women at night. The lighting of the mural allow it to be enjoyed all hours of the day and night.
