Neighborhood congregation Chase Oaks Church unveiled a mural celebrating Plano’s diverse people and culture that wraps around their building. Mayor Muns was presented with a photo of the mural as a gift to the city.
“Public art has the power to tell great stories, celebrate things that are worth celebrating and invoke a sense of belonging in the places we live,” said Chase Oaks Arts and Cultural Engagement Pastor Greg Holmes. “This mural is not about Chase Oaks. Instead, it seeks to celebrate and honor our community in an artistic and compelling way.”
Nods to a variety of Plano’s biggest cultures and cultural events like Plano Balloon Fest, the monarch butterflies that migrate through Plano every year, Chinese lanterns and patterns representing the Chinese community and other cultural nods.
“Ultimately, we wanted to create something that is for the community – where the community feels like they are in it, and seen in it, and valued,” said Lindsay Zodrow, one of the artists on the project.
Chase Oaks Church is a non-denominational Christian church located at 281 Legacy Dr. and can be seen off of Legacy.
