Be Moved by Love
I caught this a month after it first appeared, but it's destined to stick around. With the community garden right on the corner, and the block's beautiful mixed stock of buildings, the U.Santini moving company art murals just add to 15th's good spirit.
"The company commissioned local artist Tara Dixon to create a piece of art to be painted on the gates of the business with the goal of inspiring the community and neighbors alike. The mural on the gates will be colorful flowers in the spirit of Earth Day that local residents and those who want to participate can paint. The main gate will have the message BE MOVED BY LOVE painted in gold to motivate all who view the artwork."
... "It is an honor to be a part of this project and I'm excited to work with the community, " said artist Tara Dixon. "These murals will hopefully be a reminder of love, and how it is a vehicle for positive change. As people walk by they can pick up a brush and add a bloom to the garden. We protect what we love, and this can happen block by block. I think this is a great message for Earth Day and every day."
U. Santini was established in 1930, by current owner Daniel Menchini's grandfather Peter.
