Artists from Artists First were commissioned by Maplewood resident Mary Taylor to paint a mural of sunflowers on a portion of her backyard fence.
Artists at the Artists First studio, collaborated on the design including composition, colors and techniques. The painting is in progress.
Artists First Executive Director Sheila Suderwalla said the project has been a rewarding experience for the artists.
“Participating in the larger community is important to some of our marginalized artists such as those with disabilities. The mural project is another way that our artists are able to increase their earning capacity and another way to showcase their talents,” she said.
