Wall Art

This is part of a mural painted on the Habitat Homestore in the downtown Nashville area. Operated by the Nashville-area Habitat for Humanity, the store (which is one of two in the area, by the way) sells new and used building supplies and home-related items to the general public at a discount. The Habitat Homestore that is home to the wall above sells building materials, while the other store sells home furnishings.

All proceeds from sales at the store go directly to Habitat for Humanity to help build homes for people who cannot afford a conventional mortgage. In the first five years of their existence, the Habitat Homestores have provided enough capital to build five homes in Nashville.

The wall art shown above is just a portion of the piece. It actually extends the entire length of the building. Tomorrow, I'll show you another part of it.

The wall art is nice. I don't say this too much for graffiti but this is an exception as far as I am concerned.

I like the colors. We have visited the habitat store in Dallas a couple of times. I think we got light fixtures there. Its a great store.

Somebody has a good sense of showmanship with their art.
