Blue Mural in NoDa

mosaic107 ps_07 

This mural is a tribute to NoDa; the 1,200-square-foot painting of 270 NoDa residents on the exterior wall of JackBeagle’s bar was painted by William Puckett and his wife Lauren. It was a collaborative effort. Artist’s wife got permission, raised the money, and photographed people to be included in the final work. Will Puckett began painting on April 16, 2009. He completed it 18 months later, working nights and weekends while working weekdays at a veterinary clinic. Neither he nor Lauren got paid a dime.

Will Puckett also made a depiction of Mecklen–burg County’s fabled Declaration of Independence from Britain in 1775.
