Opt for Optimism
Uplifting mural pops up at South Flores to inspire optimism and photo ops
You might notice a new mural at 1802 S. Flores St., and hopefully it will lift your spirits.
Frost Bank commissioned Los Otros, the popular street art duo consisting of Shek Vega and Nik Soupe, to depict what optimism means to them, and the result is a youthful image that explores infinite possibilities. Together, Los Otros has more than 30 years of experience in street art and culture, and aim to visually connect communities through their work.
Come check out the mural for yourself on November 7 from 11 am-2 pm, when Frost Bank and CultureMap will be hosting a pop-up event. Snap and share a photo in front of the new wall art, use the hashtag #OptForOptimism, and you could win $500 cash plus another $500 for your favorite nonprofit.
Expect other fun surprises and giveaways throughout the day, thanks to community partners Alamo Drafthouse, The Aztec Theatre, High Brew, and Live Love Pop, to name a few.
