Chad’s Imagination

Artist Chad Brady has a huge imagination with winged murals in downtown Appleton.

According to the city’s Public Art Map, there are 11 murals (along with painted traffic control boxes, sculpture and sidewalk poetry) in the downtown College Avenue area, discreetly waiting to be found. I came across a newer mural on Saturday as I hurried to the Farmer’s Market. The year before, the walls on this side street were completely bare.

This year…butterflies! So many pretty butterflies!

Chad has completed other murals, these two for example:

But, oh man, do I love the butterflies!

There’s a plethora of fluttering and buzzing imagination on these walls.

Float like a butterfly…

Sting like a bee…

I’m delighted for the residents and visitors of Appleton that Chad is part of this beautiful initiative of change.

This post has been brought to you by pretty butterflies and an artist’s imagination. If you are wondering what “One-Liner Wednesday is all about, CLICK HERE.

      That absolutely made me smile, Judy. I love that they’re beautifying the city with murals and other artwork. It makes for a positive environment.

    I love it when communities fill the bland surfaces and areas with art. It makes it seem more like home, like “we decorated to make you feel better.” I do like the butterflies, but they are all very nice.

      The city leaders who advocate for this kind of art certainly have my blessings and the community’s support. I can’t imagine that anyone would not like this brand of colorful happiness.

      When I have a quiet Saturday, I want to wander through the farmer’s market in the morning and then go in search of the other murals because seeing them makes my soul happy. 🙂

    With my fear of heights having the imagination as wings works for me. Ali is right. Without imagination we can’t really fly.
