Hyattsville’s newest piece of public art is a 14-by-40-foot mural, installed the first week of April over Franklins’ south-facing exterior brick wall. “My first love is neon,” admits shop owner Mike Franklin. That wasn’t feasible for a project this size, but he still wanted something “whimsical, cheery and colorful.” When he googled “kinetic light mural,” he knew he had found his medium. Soon he found an artist who specialized in it, Massachusetts designer Liz Manicatide. She comes to Hyattsville this month to transform the already eye-catching mural into the kinetic light mural of Franklin’s imagination.
