Parkway is strongly committed to public art as a means of building a stronger community. Over the last several decades, we have partnered with local artists and organizations to produce pieces that are both beautiful and impactful.
The Declaration mural is one of our latest partnerships with local artists and organizations to produce beautiful and impactful pieces. Parkway's commitment to meaningful community art has now expanded to over a dozen significant murals and sculptures in the city. Declaration is displayed on the Carlisle Street side of our headquarters, facing 15th Street.
