Herd Off Hurd
Sponsor: Edmond Visual Arts Commission partnered with Frederick Berg Canvas provided by Zahrai Family
On the rear wall (east side) of the one-story building at 100 N. Broadway, just east on Hurd Avenue, this is a bright, colorful mural 60 ft. by 13 ft. called Buffalo Off Broadway.
It is painted in aqua, gold and white and runs the full length of the building. On the south end is a large buffalo painted in aqua and gold in a style which mimics mosaic or pixels (little squares of color). The sun is depicted above, and a large chevron beneath the buffalo. At the bottom is a checkerboard of gold and hot pink.
Along the upper portion of the wall is a checkerboard of aqua and gold. At the north end of the mural another large buffalo is painted aqua and gray, and a row of four smaller checkerboard buffaloes finish out the landscape on the north.
The mural was painted by Zonly Looman, owner of Studio Z which occupies a portion of this building. It was painted in April 2017.
NOTE: 7/3/17 – We just learned that the mural is still a work-in-progress. The portion on the north end which is less colorful is still being worked on. That portion will be named “Herd on Hurd” (the name of the street to the south). Will monitor and update as the mural is completed.
UPDATE: 7/28/17 – Mural is complete. Added two additional photos of the north end after completion.
