Try A Little Tenderness

@ VOL 26 ON APR 12, 2018

The “Try A Little Tenderness” mural is an homage to Otis Redding, designed by Cyla Costa and Jackson Alves, produced and documented by Henrique Nardi on 1146 Willy Street in 2016. Cyla and Jackson are members of Criatipos, an art and design collective from Curitiba, south of Brazil. Last December marked the 50th anniversary of Otis Redding’s fatal plane crash into Lake Monona. The mural aims to reconnect the city with Otis in an uplifting way while honoring his musical legacy. Funded by The Madison Arts Commission.
