“The Garden” Mural, by Hueman
Over 100 cans of spray paint and 2,700-square-feet of corrugated iron were used to create our vibrant, two-story mural that showcases the concept of “food as art.” Artist Hueman (Allison Tinati) found inspiration in the Copia garden, which she used to create this striking abstract portrait of butter lettuce.
