This mural, located at the corner of 2nd and East Walnut streets in Eunice right across from Ruby’s on 2nd, was painted by local artist Hannah Gumbo as part of a grant from the ArtSpark Individual Artist Funding Program. The grant program is a joint initiative of the Acadiana Center for the Arts and the Lafayette Economic Development Authority.
The vibrant colors used in the mural showcase Hannah’s distinct style. The mural draws inspiration from icons in local Cajun and Creole culture including the famous Mardi Gras Celebration the Courir de Mardi Gras, but with a hint of the abstract. The mural revitalizes the century-old wall that it is painted on, showing downtown goers the personality of Eunice. An onlooker can continue to find new significance in the work the longer they look.
