The mural above Pelican Tattoo was one of four works of public art commissioned by Real Art Ways for Hartford’s Parkville and Frog Hollow neighborhoods. The murals were a part of their Real Public 2009 initiative. The Pelican Tattoo mural was created by Sofia Maldonado and was finished in 2009. The actual painting is not painted straight onto the brick of the building. It is instead painted onto slabs of wood that were then installed onto the front face of the building. It shows multiple female characters surrounded by waves of green, orange, and blue.
