“Be True,” 117 S. 3rd St., north facing, Luna Datura’s Curious Gifts, by Sam Kirk, 2021 CRE8IV murals

Be True, 2021

This piece was created for the Cre8IV @gorockford Mural Festival in Rockford, IL. The mural is a celebration of many communities, but the LGBTQ community is the central focus in this one. When creating this I was inspired by those who live life true to who they are, no filters, no limitations. Sam Kirk, http://iamsamkirk.com/
