“Earthbound” Mural
45 N. Market St. (north side wall)
Frederick, MD 21701
“Earthbound,” designed by William Cochran in 1988, is the second installation of a three-part series titled “Angels in the Architecture.” He executed the trompe l’oeil mural in 1989 with Paul F. Wilson, who painted the angel and pheasant. As with all “Angels in the Architecture” murals, elements are displaced in space and time: a lost pheasant sleeps on the sill of windows drawn from nearby Kemp Hall, while an aging, grounded angel stares into the city, lost in thought.
