This weekend I did some exploring in downtown Raleigh and came across artist Morgan Cook, who was in the process of painting this “E” mural in a galaxy background.
Cook, a native North Carolinian from Chapel Hill, recently returned from a stint in Los Angeles. Now firmly planted in Raleigh, he has set upon a community art project to beautify the city, which he calls #TheAlphabetProjectNC.
“E” for East Cabarrus Street? Yes.
This year-long project will feature all 26 letters of the alphabet in 26 different locations of Raleigh. He has done letters A-E so far and that’s just 2 months into the new year. He expects to finish the rest of the alphabet by end of 2020.
Check out his Instagram (@artofmck), for more glimpses of his art and hints of where the other letter murals are sprinkled around the city.
