DreamWrights Center for Community Arts together with The Cultural Alliance of York County brought together a collaboration of six York artists to work on portions of this mural where figures release birds representing creativity and imagination.

The mural, subtitled “Rise of the Arts Phoenix” interacts with the sun through the use of several pearlescent colors, and was designed and largely created by York artist Brett Greiman. At 1,100 sq.ft. this is the largest work of art of his career!

The six York artists brought together to design and create the figures along the lower portion of the mural are:

Brett Greiman
Luz Marrero
Suzanne Rende
Phil Vera
Annelise Marie Vuono
Anita Murphy Williams
