The votes are in. After a close battle, the Orange Mural by Gillian Fazio has been named the best mural in Lakeland by our readers.
Did you know that Gillian is a Lakeland native specializing in flora + fauna art? Coincidentally we did a full Q+A with Gillian just the other month, which you can read here. If you want to view the Orange Mural, visit the Yard on Mass to see it in real life.
Congrats, Gillian. 👏
With the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments just around the corner, we’re joining the fun of bracket competitions with a face-off of our own.
We asked you to share your favorite mural in Lakeland with us, and now — thanks to you + the help of a random generator — we have the official lineup for our bracket.
Who’s in the running
Going head-to-head in the first round are:
- Orange Mural (Gillian Fazio) and Let’s Ride (Gillian Fazio)
- Greetings From Lakeland (A.H. Taylor) and Botany Cats (Maegan Danielle)
- Astronaut Knight (Christian Stanley) and Create (Gillian Fazio)
- Cultivate (Maegan Danielle) and Gaines Jewelers (Gillian Fazio)
How it works
Beginning today, we will host several voting rounds within our newsletters and social channels to determine Lakeland’s best mural. Who moves on is up to you. Vote for your favorites, and the mural with more votes moves on. Simple as that. We’ll go until we have a champion, which will be announced in an upcoming March newsletter. You will be able to vote once per round.
How to participate
Vote for the mural you’d like to see advance to round two using this poll. You can vote for all four spots or as little as one. Once we count all the votes, we’ll share an updated bracket and new poll in an upcoming newsletter.
