Plano peeps have one more spot to satisfy our need for Insta-worthy snaps. The Shops at Legacy recently hired renowned muralist Kelsey Montague to create a large piece of public art in the West Plano neighborhood.
Kelsey is known for her #whatliftsyou series where people (and pets) of all sizes can pose in front of elaborately sketched wings. Kelsey is an artist “that is very interested in exploring how public art, interactive art and social media intersect,” according to her website. She travels the world creating large-scale, colorful works of art that encourage people to get engaged.
The mural at The Shops at Legacy is more than 16 feet high and 23 feet wide, and is located on Kincaid Road, on the south side of Legacy Drive, next to Francesca’s.
“We look forward to seeing everyone’s pictures with the mural as they embrace it and make it come alive,” said Kelsey Ishmael, marketing director for The Shops at Legacy.
The Legacy mural is the artist’s first creation in the area. “I am so very excited to bring my first permanent installation to Texas and specifically to work with The Shops at Legacy!” Kelsey said.
Her work has been featured around the world, from Beunos Aires, Argentina, to Cape Town, South Africa, and across the U.S. It has been profiled in Entertainment Weekly, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and The Smithsonian, and has been mentioned by superstars including Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens.
