​The mural is designed to integrate with the fire hall’s architecture and the agricultural landscape around it. An open countryside appears to show through the windows, celebrating the local wildlife and geography.  Horizontal gradients of colour create a soft, blurred illusion of movement when you drive by. Blue = sky and tributaries, green = tree lines and produce, yellow = corn fields and farmland, and red-browns = fertile earth and #211’s brick exterior. In the centre is a glowing warm sun, which is also a cross-section of a corn cob, and a blossom for the City of Flowers.
