The Argenta Mural Project started in 2020 and has already produced some startling beautiful results.

The project was started by developer and businessman John Gaudin with artworks by seven local artists scattered around Argenta.

Maybe the most prominent mural is at Flyway Brewing, 314 Maple St.,  and was done by Nancy Jordan. It features ducks and geese and other birds in flight and is quite striking as it covers the south-facing wall of the brewery. Jordan also did murals at the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub and on the back wall of  Blake’s Furniture along the alley

Other artists and locations include:

  • Nancy Jordan, Diamond Bear Brewery

  • Perrion Y. Hurd, 4th and 5th streets

  • Nancy Griffey Jordan, Diamond Bear Brewing Company

  • Jessica Jones, 400 N. Olive St.

  • Kevin Kresse, 700 Main St.

Kreese also did the Dogtown Proud mural at 400 Main St., and Emily Wood has an ongoing mural at 413 Main St.
