To celebrate the exhibition The Worlds of M. C. Escher, quotes by Escher about his art, inspiration, and creative challenges have popped up around downtown Raleigh. We hope to inspire conversation, spark curiosity, and foster community spirit in the area’s urban design scene.
To bring these quotes to life, the NCMA partnered with local businesses and Jedidiah Gant of the Raleigh Murals Project to create murals on downtown Raleigh buildings, including Videri Chocolate Factory, AHpeele Studio, Trophy Brewing & Pizza Co., BLDG Co., Holder Goods & Crafts, the FEED building, and The Pink Building.
The murals are painted by local artist David Eichenberger. The typeface used in the quotes was inspired by one of Escher’s block-print alphabets.
