The District 1 Neighborhood: Fulton Ave Railroad Underpass public art project is located on Fulton Avenue between Beacon Hill and Alta Vista. “Canopy” transforms the underpass into a cool grove of Cypress trees that can be found lining nearby San Pedro springs. The mural uses a palate of greens and blues to depict the flora, fauna, and native South Texas birds that populate the dense forest. The hand painted mural incorporates student observations from nearby Agnes Cotton Academy, taken from an artist lead nature observation workshop with the fourth and seventh grade classes. The design allows visitors to experience the mural through multiple viewings and invites viewers to literally ‘find’ themselves in the forest.
