Mural Mice & Sky Black

Flagstaff artist Sky Black and the Mural Mice (artists R.E. Wall and Margaret Dewar) are joining forces to place a mural of enormous proportions on the east-facing exterior wall of the Orpheum Theater in Downtown Flagstaff.

The mural is designed by twenty-two year old Flagstaff painting prodigy, Sky Black. The piece, titled Sound of Flight, depicts the climax of a song as a diverse flock of birds rise spectacularly from the glowing recesses of a grand piano.

It has been a dream for Black to paint the historic Orpheum Theater. However on a wall measuring 4,500 square feet, the Sound of Flight mural is an ambitious project. That is why veteran muralists R.E. Wall and Margaret Dewar are lending their talents and community leadership experience to the cause. The project is expected to take two seasons, with the first half painted in the summer of 2014. The project will be completed in summer 2015.
