CFAC Announces Cabot’s First Mural Complete
Artist Glenda Krauss Completes The Postcard Mural
Cabot, AR: The Cabot Foundation for Arts & Culture today announced the completion of Cabot’s FIRST large-scale mural. The artist, Glenda Krauss, finished up work on Friday, June 19, after painting for a week. The mural was completed in partnership with the City of Cabot, who donated the side of the Old Firehouse for the project.
“As the mural states, ‘Welcome to Cabot!’,” says Becky Williams, VP at CFAC. “We knew The Postcard had to be the first large-scale mural in our community. It opens the door to visitors and declares Cabot the ‘Strawberry Capital of Arkansas’.”
The new mural shines at 114 W. Pine St. in the Cabot Art Walk.
The new mural in the Art Walk invites people into the Arts & Entertainment district, creates a space to gather (for photos or conversation), and builds pride in the community.
Earlier in the year, CFAC received funds from the Cabot Advertising and Promotions Commission to install several large-scale murals in downtown Cabot. The Postcard launches the implementation of that initiative. Although the COVID-19 crisis slowed down progress, CFAC hopes to have at least two more murals completed by the end of 2020.
