CBI MURAL BINOCULAR WALL
11 / 01 / 2018
The 10'-9" x 17'-4" mural running along the Old Pineville Road side of the CBI building is their way to inspire others to live a life focused on love. The inspiration for the mural came from the Wynwood community in Miami, Florida that embraces art in an effort to positively impact the community.
In late 2017, CBI and Gensler engaged us to manage the overall art coordination of what would become the Binocular Wall. We served as a judge for the initial concept competition and then led the RFP that resulted in the addition of Osiris Rain to the team. We worked with his team to translate CBI's vision and Gensler's concept to a unique Osiris Rain piece.
This wall depicts how true love manifests itself through treating one another with love, dignity and respect. We are a diverse group of individuals from different backgrounds and we must challenge ourselves and those around us to take time to look through someone else's lens. Only by seeing the world through the perspective of another can we gain compassion and empathy for our fellow man.
