Local artist completes Garland mural

Local artist Aaron Smith’s latest work can now be seen at the corner of Garland Avenue and Lincoln Street, on the exterior wall lining the Clock House and the Garland Drinkery.

Inspired by Gilbert Williams’ “Moon Temple,” Smith secured permission to recreate his own version of the piece titled “Haven of the Great Northwest.”

Building from Williams’ original design, Smith added representations of foliage from around the Garland District, along with an image of a white stag. In honor of the Clock House’s opening time, the temple clock reads 9 a.m.

A Smith previous work, an untitled mural depicting a kayaker, can be seen on the Avenue West building.
