The (Short) Story of Our Lightbulb Mural

Blake Tyers

If you had questions or even if you didn't, here's the scoop:

Not long ago we had Michelle Fontaine paint a mural of our Crave Curiosity lightbulb logo on the side of our building. We didn't think twice about it before painting it on the Pulaski St. side of our building, and after it was up we found out it may have been better to do some thinking. The city very kindly informed us afterwards that there is a city ordinance that states a business may only have one sign per store front, and because we use this logo as a part of our brand, it would be considered signage and not art. Sadly, that meant we had to paint over it but we're pretty lucky that's all we had to do.  

However, there is good news! The city told us that there is a chance the ordinance could change in as quickly as two months from now, allowing businesses to have one sign per street facing wall. If and when the ordinance changes, you can bet we'll have Michelle painting that mural back up there. We all need a reminder to crave curiosity and to follow our passions everyday and this little piece of art is our way of keeping it on our minds. Thank you to the city for being so cordial while keeping us in line. Also, thank you for being curious and hopefully we'll bring some love back to the wall on Pulaski that can once again be immortalized in your amazing photos. Cheers!
