Where is the future mural of your city?

I'm not saying you can not have historical murals. I'm just saying that you can also have future murals. Photo of Becky McCray, Kingfisher, Oklahoma.

Every city needs a future mural or a series of them.

It looks like every little town has a mural on the theme of history, but very few have a mural on the future or even modern style.

Many cities use old photos as display media, including in empty buildings. People talk about what you the usual to have. But how do you engage people to talk about what you will become?

If each display represents the past, who shows the future?

For each historical image, make an individual correspondence with a future image.

We spend enough time reminding people that our city has a past. We do not spend enough time reminding people that our city has a future.
