UPDATE: This and all the murals in this series were destroyed in the Christmas Day Bombing.
Working left to right on the wall of window murals at the AT&T Central Office on 2nd Avenue (not to be confused with the more famous AT&T building in Nashville, the Batman Building on Commerce Street) the fourth work is by Emily Leonard.
It’s part of series of murals on the building sponsored by AT&T, the Nashville Downtown Partnership, The DISTRICT, Nashville Metro Arts Commission, and The Studio 208. All are done by women, and the project was curated by Ashley Segroves of The Studio 208. They are all on vinyl, and went up in the summer of 2018.
This mural is based on a work Leonard calls simply “Peonies,” because that’s what it is, a somewhat abstract image of peonies. At one point, prints of this this image were available, but I checked her shop and they are sold out. It’s part of a series of floral works she has done. While an abstraction of peonies, it’s also the “realistic” of the murals in this series.
You can see the other murals in this series (once I’ve posted them all, there are eight in all) using the links below. There’s a bit more information about the project in Part 1.
Below you can see it context, along with murals by Tess Davies and Jade Carter.
