Plaza Living Legends Party

  • NW 16th and Indiana

The beauty of a mural is the impact it can have beyond the wall. The recent Plaza Walls mural has certainly made that impact. Artist Dusty Gilpin’s “Welcome to the Plaza” is a tribute to Plaza District’s very own living legends, Charles “Cuz” Kirby and Domingo Luna. Dusty wrote it best:

“Every town has a sign or a mural or water tower recognizing their hometown heroes or living legends. Well, these are ours. They've had no financial investment in the development of the neighborhood, but they help define what the Plaza is. The Plaza is a community, not a shopping center. The Plaza, like Cuz would have it, is a family. Absolutely, and most importantly, everyone is welcome here,”

To celebrate these legends, the Plaza District is hosting a surprise party in their honor. A chance to treat them like the celebrities they are, to us. Help us honor them by showing up the party! We’d love to see them surrounded by their family, Plaza family and a whole bunch of people they don’t know. Think of it as a flash mob of sorts, a chance to be a part of something special.

The party will take place in front on the Plaza Wall mural on Indiana and NW 16th Street from 8-8:30pm (feel free to stay longer and mingle!). We will have light refreshments, hear a few words from old friends and present them with something special.
