Daytona Beach - City Highlights

[ARCHIVED] Inspirational mural unveiled in Midtown

Midtown Mural

A striking new mural is adorning the façade of Midtown Café Daytona, which is on the northwest corner of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard and Walnut Street. The vibrant, custom designed artwork, titled “Inspire” and sponsored by the city, pays homage to Daytona Beach’s rich heritage by showcasing vignettes of four icons of the Midtown community –  Charles W. Cherry Sr., founder of the Daytona Times; James Huger Sr., who was the first Black Daytona Beach city commissioner and first Black Volusia County councilman; Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, founder of Bethune-Cookman University; and Yvonne Scarlett-Golden, the city’s first Black mayor. The colorful mural was designed and produced by Ormond Beach artist Perego, who is well known for his murals and live performances throughout Volusia County. 

Another large mural depicting Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, titled “Beauty and Brains,” by local artist Shyriaka Morris of The Peace Project Inc., is scheduled to be painted on the side of the business at 400 Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Blvd. The project, which is also sponsored by the city, is expected to begin this fall.
