City Gym Murals

City Gym Murals

The Artwork


The 30-foot long, 6.5-foot tall vinyl murals incorporate collages of Edina Hornets boys and girls basketball and volleyball players. Two additional smaller murals display the Edina Hornet logo.

The Artist


The murals were created by local artist Robert Ellison using digital photo manipulation. His ability to use contemporary and colorful images and fill them with the illusion of action and movement made them a perfect addition to the otherwise bland gym walls. The original photos for the murals were provided by two Edina Sun-Current photographers, Craig Lassig and John Sherman.

Funding


The murals, which cost around $5,000 to create and install, were a response by the Edina Public Art Committee to a challenge from the Park & Recreation Department to spruce up the empty gym walls.
