Arts on Fire Mural

In Plano, an old building is receiving an art face lift.  

Attracting budding artists to her store will not be a problem for Kelly Browning.

While a regular business sign could do, the calling card for her Arts on Fire pottery business is an outdoor floral mural, readily visible from the busy streets, the stoplight at Route 34 and Hale Street in Plano.

So why a mural by Browning and crew and not a sign to advertise her business?

The remake is the first project in the facade improvement program for the city of Plano.

Under the program, business owners may receive half of the project cost up to $2,500 from the city, said Browning.

So, why flowers in the land known for harvesting reapers for the farm?

Browning explains.

Browning described the process of an outdoor art mural on the old hardware store wall that measures 114 feet long by 15 feet high.

The mural has become, as they say, an overnight sensation in Plano.

Imagine this winter, a gray cloudy cold day with snow, those flowers will still bring a smile.
