There’s a new work of art joining Cowtown’s colorful mural scene. Texas artist Armando Castelan is bringing the east-facing wall of 2800 Yeager St. to life with the rich history of Black businesses.

Commissioned by CommUnity Frontline, a local non-profit committed to racial justice and healing, the mural depicts local Black businesses such as Black Coffee (1417 Vaughn Blvd.) and leaders like Amanda Davis, the first Black property owner in the historic Stop Six neighborhood. Once completed, it will also feature silhouettes of the nonprofit’s founders.

In the works since 2019, the mural is slated for completion ahead of Black Heritage Month in February.

The “CommUnity Frontline Business Mural” will add to Armando’s Fort Worth portfolio, alongside his heart-themed mural at the corner of East 2nd and Grove Streets, which he completed as part of a residency program through Sundance Square and Artspace 111.
