Beauty in All Colors
Artist: Christen Danner ; North Little Rock
Tell Us a Little About This Mural:
This mural’s nonobjective linework mirrors the style that I usually make work in. While I primarily work in black and white, I was inspired to work in color because of CFAC’s mission to bring life to the community of Cabot.

I have a firm belief that the arts are beneficial to any community, whether it’s performing arts, or visual art. They bring understanding, communication, and build bridges amongst those a part of the community.
