#DTJax Weekly Update: September 22-28, 2020

Instagram of the Week

@yayaradiofm captured this gorgeous new mural in #DTJax by artist Steven Teller, produced by Art Republic. Located Downtown Jacksonville, at Forsyth and N. Market Street.

“The black and white flowers are a representation of the dark past, the colorful flowers are the hope of the present progress, and the sunset inspired background represents the rays of the new rising sun. The past and present are going through the process of being illuminated by the rhythmic movement of the line of music dancing through the composition. This line is the powerful song being sung out by a Jacksonville local musical artist and model @akaimarje “ -Steven Teller
