To celebrate Amberley Village’s 75th anniversary, a committee of Amberley residents collaborated with the nonprofit Kennedy Heights Arts Center to create a very special piece of art that would serve as a permanent welcome to visitors and residents.
The very talented artist, Cedric Michael Cox (one of our CINspirational People), was selected to work with a committee to design the outdoor mural that will be displayed on a wall adjacent to Amberley’s Municipal Building.
“When I met with the committee members and toured the historic parks and pastures of the neighborhood, it was clear to me that the people of Amberley enjoyed its natural untouched beauty. The homes and public buildings in Amberley don’t live on top of nature they live within nature. The natural rural environment is the core to its everlasting charm,” Cedric wrote in his blog.
In July, he and Amberley residents brought the concepts to life. Many hours were spent collaborating, painting and getting to know others in their community. To see more photos of them working on it, please click here to visit Cedric’s blog.
“I wanted this mural to celebrate the community’s respect for wildlife and nature. Whoever looks upon this wall should feel invited to be a part of this place where man and wildlife live in harmonious respect,” wrote Cedric.
You are invited!
The dedication for the mural will be
