Crown Hill Tunnel Murals

Crown Hill Tunnel Murals

The tunnel under 38th St. at Crown Hill Cemetery hosts two sets of murals created by local artists.

Amiah Mims’ floral compositions flank the tunnel entrances on both sides. Reminiscent of 18th century still lifes, they reinforce the classical details of the tunnel’s architecture.

Tasha Beckwith’s nature-inspired paintings form a continuous frieze inside the tunnel itself.  Deer, birds, butterflies, flowers and other natural elements found on the property are set against a geometric backdrop with exciting color shifts.

The art collection at Crown Hill includes sculptures, monuments and markers, stained-glass windows, historic structures, and the natural beauty of the property itself.
