Courtyard Chronicles: A Colorful Canvas of Community at the Court of Colors

The Court of Colors in Full Bloom, Mural by Amber Andersen

Greetings, art enthusiasts, and community connoisseurs! Prepare to embark on a visual journey as we unveil the vibrant tapestry of the Court of Colors. Nestled behind Larry K Hill Studios at 715 Main Street, this hidden gem invites you to explore the intersection of art, history, and community spirit.

Discovering the Court of Colors:

Accessible through the alley or directly from Larry K Hill Studios, the Court of Colors is more than a courtyard; it's a living canvas that breathes life into Woodward's artistic legacy. As an active participant in many of Woodward’s events in conjunction with Woodward Main Street, the Court of Colors is an integral aspect of our community.

Twelve captivating murals adorn the Court, each a masterpiece crafted by local artists including Amanda Mead, Amber Andersen, Allie Patton, Freddie Breeden, Mikel Robinson, Kim Hensal, Malory Wride, Bridget Moore, Briana Harris, on artist who wishes to be anonymous, and the local Girl Scouts Troop. Their work transforms the space into a dynamic gallery, telling tales of diversity, resilience, and pioneer spirit!

As you step into the Court, notice the ground beneath your feet – each brick tells a story. Salvaged from the historic States Hotel, which tragically burned down last year,  these bricks pave the way for a unique connection between Woodward's past and present.
