A mural featuring 25 Ann Arbor-themed references has been installed on the back of the Ann Arbor Art Center (facing the Republic Parking lot). Seventeen year old artist and Art Center intern Olivia Maldonado designed and painted the vibrant mural. The theme of the mural is “people in transit,” and includes local celebrities like Wallace the Cat and favorite places like the Farmers’ Market. The mural was created as part of a partnership with Toyota Motor North America Research and Development commemorating involvement in the 2017 Ann Arbor Art Center exhibition, In Transit.
