Artists get ‘Wings of Tyler’ interactive mural underway; completion set for September

Wings of Tyler

TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Two artists are working together to bring to life a mural they hope will inspire those who pass through downtown Tyler each day.

It will also prove to be a hot spot for photographers who are on the lookout for new places for photo shoots (or Instagram pics). The mural, called Wings of Tyler, will depict several sets of very detailed, colorful angel-like wings. The wings will not be painted onto the wall, however; they will created in studio, on panels that will be painted and will include colored mirror tiles.

Wings of Tyler is “an interactive wall art installation" scheduled for unveiling in September 2019. Dace Lucia Kidd and Cassie Edmonds are the two artists bringing the mural’s design to life. It will consist of those five sets of wings on the west-facing side of the Edward Jones building, located on the corner of Broadway and Elm. The artists hope to encourage people to take pictures of the art and to become a part of the art as they stand in front of the wings for photographs and get creative. They hope it will become a “must see” spot for visitors.

According to Wings of Tyler’s Facebook page, all five wings have sponsors which will be acknowledged with an engraved plaque. There will also be an additional plaque listing the names of overall project donors.

There may still be project expenses these two artists are facing, so if you want to be a part of this prominent art project and would like to have more information, you can contact the artists by messaging them through this page.
