New murals part of effort to breathe life into Arlington
The Arlington 20/20 initiative is using public art to breathe new life into Warrington Park, namely with the addition of two new murals, which were dedicated to the community in a ceremony Tuesday. Nico Holderbaum, the artist behind the murals, said the community banded together to create the murals, from friends to volunteers who heard about the effort on social media. “People underestimate the power of public art to elevate and transform communities.”Holderbaum said the murals have two different themes: dream big and fly high. It’s still inspirational for communities to see that someone cares enough to invest beauty and creativity in their neighborhood and that can inspire hope,” Holderbaum said. Hope is the biggest thing I think public art can provide.”To learn more about the Arlington 20/20 initiative, visit the organization’s website.
