KHUAD

This mural was painted by Muji Rieger in 2020. The acronym KHUAD stand for Knob Hill Urban Arts District which PAES164 founded in 2018 to promote mural painting in the Nob Hill neighborhood. It represents a dream of invigorating a forgotten neighborhood defined by pawn shops and a stark stretch of urban highway led artists PAES164 and Muji Rieger to work with local business owners to fill what they call the “public art void.”

This mural combines with the Harvest Goddess Mural to create one large mural that will be there for five years. Part of the funder’s requirement was that the mural be about food and agriculture. This was done to bring attention to the food desert in the Nob Hill area. The animals are symbolic of ranching in Colorado. This mural is the right half of the “Entrance Mural” to the Hob Hill Urban Arts District and will remain on this wall until at least 2025.
