Best dare to dream: Zulu Painter’s mural at Clearwater’s North Greenwood Rec Center

Zulu Painter’s mural at Clearwater’s North Greenwood Rec Center

When COVID-19 vaccines became available, it seemed like all our dreams were about to come true. With them came the hope that we would soon be able to ditch the masks and get out and play. That’s the vision Zulu had for the future when he painted a young girl dreaming of play on the side of North Greenwood Rec Center. Unfortunately, our current reality doesn’t exactly match this gorgeous ideal. We ditched our masks, then delta crept in, bringing with it a scary amount of breakthrough cases. I guess that’s what happens when you dare to dream. zulupainter.com
