FSU Department of Art Education’s Community Mural Project
Created by Jordyn Dooley, FSU Department of Art Education students, staff, faculty, alumni, and members of the Tallahassee community
This is the 7th mural the Department has completed in Tallahassee. Called “Tallahassee on the Move,” the mural design was inspired by the transition from the past to present day of the Tallahassee area where the local business AMWAT was built, which has now become a major moving enterprise. Tallahassee has a significant historical past that can be appreciated in the painting from left to right. Starting on the left side of the painting, a lighthouse represents the beginning of the Spanish settlement at St. Marks, which then transitioned to a hub of industry and became home to the first railway in Florida. On the right side of the painting, a cyclist represents how Tallahassee is riding into the future.
