The large colorful mural we told you was coming to a prominent wall at 45 W. Crystal Lake Street across from Target in the SoDo Plaza (MAP) has been completed. The creation of this large scale mural, painted by local artist Christian Stanley (Instagram), was sponsored by the Orlando Main Street Program.
The mural is approximately 27 feet by 8 feet. The basis for the mural comes from the Sodo District logo, which has similar colors and line work.
You may recognize Stanley's his name as one of the muralists participating in the Endangered Florida Birds Mural Project.
This mural is part of a larger project. "The SoDo District is currently in the process of a major branding effort," says Linnette Boldig, the SoDo Main Street District Manager. Beginning in January, the SODO main street district (Website) will begin hanging new street banners on light poles throughout the district. They will also kick off the fun task of having local artist paint original works on all their electrical boxes. Lynx bus shelters will also be getting the creative treatment as well, with paintings going up on them.
