Joel Boyd of Joel Boyd Fine Art recently completed his latest public art project, a mural facing Caldwell Street at Conway’s Central Fire Station. 

 

Made possible by the funding from the Conway Public Art Committee, this is the latest addition to the area in an effort to live up to the committee’s overall mission: Encouraging an artistic Conway through the creation, acquisition and/or display of community-centered art.

Boyd is no stranger to creating public art, as the completion of this mural is one of many that can be seen throughout the Natural State. With public artworks in every region, several displays of Boyd’s work can be seen in downtown Little Rock. For examples of Boyd’s other murals, click here. 

 

In a recent Facebook post, Boyd said, “Today I completed one of my most ambitious projects to date. It was so nice to finally pull the plastic off the windows and reveal the finished project . . . It has been such an honor to work with downtown Conway, and even more humbling to be trusted with the fire station.”

Within this piece, Boyd created an interactive element where hidden pictures can be found within the mural. According to Boyd, these pictures are small and camouflaged with color. Additionally, a timelapse of the mural’s progression can be found on the Joel Boyd Fine Art Facebook page.
