Shown: 3 of 6 panels. “This historical mural was painted over six months in my studio and then installed on New Years Day. You can imagine the people’s surprise when they returned to work.”

  • Greensboro Public Library, Main Branch, Greensboro, NC.
    Detail of the 40´ X 7´ mural of the city's history in the main lobby.

  • Meadowmont Club House, Chapel Hill, NC 16´ X 18´.

“Because of Michael Brown, we have a permanent masterwork of mural art to commemorate the 250th birthday of Orange County and our community’s impact on history. His careful research and vetting of details, brought to life with his artistic talent, gave us a magnificent panorama of our local triumphs, struggles and heroes.”
