Beauty in the Process: Design District Mural by artist Kyle Steed

Posted by    |    June 5th, 2014 at 8:59 am

One of our favorite local artists, Kyle Steed (check out his website, here) recently finished the super cool typographic mural on our Trinity Market Center along The Trinity Strand Trail. The mural features words inspired by JFK’s famous quote encouraging a sense of community within Dallas’ ever-growing Design District.

But of course, in addition to the amazing results—which we couldn’t be happier with—there is always beauty in the process itself. Thanks to Doug Klembara, we get to share that sentiment with this video, which documents the process behind the work of art.
