Project Goals: Commissioned projects such as this for local businesses are always a favorite for the Creative Division as it allows the team to give back and help support local businesses. As a resident of the Douglas, Milbery was excited to liven up the building and create an inviting environment for the other residents. The second of three murals installed at the Douglas Apartments sits directly across from the mountain range mural and while it’s smaller than the first installation, this one packs serious punch.
Graves and Milbery are both transplants from the Midwest who have resided in Colorado for 15+ years and they wanted to create a piece that honored the state that has brought them so much success and inspiration. Drawing from the traditional Colorado flag design, Graves and Milbery put their own spin on the mural adding geometric elements and vibrant aerosol colors to help the piece pop.
