    The mural above is part of artist Alex Cook’s YOU ARE LOVED mural project. You can learn about it at  www.youarelovedmurals.com

    Each mural has/is one of five messages…

    “Upwards of 50 passers-by lent their hands to paint this design.”

    15 murals have been painted in as many US states, and in two other countries.

    Alex is looking for sponsors, so if you know of a local organization or public space that could benefit from one of his engaging murals, he would love to hear from you! Please feel free to contact him at YOU ARE LOVED MURALS and ask him whatever questions you want to about the project.

    Alex has also written an in-depth article on how he overcame fears that accosted him in relation to this and other artistic endeavours. Click here to read  the article, “Finding Purpose and Overcoming Fear Through Deep Listening”.

    Thanks for the art, Alex!
