Mural at MADE by Sophie Binder - MADE STL

New Mural at MADE Reflects Our Creative Community

 

There’s a new mural in St. Louis! Last month, local artist Sophie Binder completed a two-story mural on an exterior wall of MADE Makerspace. Located in the Delmar Maker District in St. Louis City, this mural depicts how the local maker community uses the shared workspace at MADE. St. Louis’s makerspace offers a variety of tools and equipment that people can learn and use: sewing, woodworking, welding, and more.

The mural is titled ‘Creative Confluence’, and Binder shares her thoughts :

“MADE is so much more than a bunch of workshops with a lot of cool tools, it is a community. I wanted to offer an image that translates that sense of coming together to create. The river confluence brings that idea of gathering, coming from diverse backgrounds and areas into a single path where exchanges enrich creativity and knowledge.”

The mural illustrates the creative energy that MADE’s community of 500+ makers, artists, designers, and entrepreneurs. It’s open to the public to view, and can be found on the north side of MADE’s west-facing wall. Come by for a tour and see it for yourself!
