Held aloft

Artists: Jeremy Gregory with Kate Cendejas, Larine Chung, Jena Marks, Marlin Peterson
Painted: 2010

This is a piece of a larger mural.

The mural is located in the Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma, Washington and depicts local characters held aloft by futuristic flying machines, car-sized yellow daisies, and at its core, a larger-than-life, dreamy-eyed girl gazing at a friendly slug. The mural itself makes a special connection to the surrounding community by featuring two well known local heroes, Mr. Mac (the man in the red flying apparatus passing out sporting equipment) and Reverend Ivory Crittendon (the man in the flying chair showering down books). Both men have made a mark on the community by providing sporting equipment and books to promote education to Hilltop’s youth. It took Tacoma artist Jeremy Gregory and his team several months to transform the wall of the abandoned building into a work of public art and into an energizing symbol for the Hilltop neighborhood.

The above statement was mostly quoted but slightly paraphrased from:
