JACKSON, Wyo. — Jackson Hole Public Art has unveiled a new mural on the east side of The Hub Bicycles on West Pearl St.
When the Hub moved into this new space last year, owner Hal Wheeler knew he needed to make a mark on the building’s refurbished exterior. JH Public Art, in partnership with The Hub Bicycles, launched a call to artists to find a muralist who could capture the tie between bicycling and a strong community.
Artist Jeremy Collins was selected to come to Jackson in the fall of 2021 to create The Hub’s public art mural while also working on another street mural in East Jackson (you can spot the stampeding bison on Vine Street just off of Kelly), as well as a mural of bike trails in the Tetons for inside The Hub.
The result was this interpretation of a tree, with branches and leaves that surround the centerpiece of an old wheel, which the artist sees as a launching point for new growth, as well as birds gathered around which symbolizes community and place.
“The Hub is all about community and bringing people together through a love of biking and outdoor recreation,” said Wheeler. “We’re so excited about this mural partnership with JH Public Art and hope all of Jackson appreciates this new, vibrant piece of public art.”
