“Tucked away in a hidden alley, our mural is about discovery, and the thrill that comes with finding a monstrous colorful squirrel in an unexpected place. It’s intended to transform a previously unkempt alley into a space where people can just smile at the sheer fun of it. The relationship between the person and the
squirrel is open to interpretation, and viewers offered different narratives even as we painted it. We hope this beast puts grins on faces of Beltline explorers for years to come, whenever they stumble upon it.”
