Fort Pierce - Friday August 25, 2023: This week on In Focus, with IRSC Public Media, we’re going to hear about a series of new outdoor murals that have transformed the look of the Peacock Arts District along Orange Avenue in Fort Pierce.

Three young artists have transformed the facades of bland old buildings and walls into a kaleidoscope of colors and images that reflect the history and culture of Fort Pierce.

They are mural artists Zoey Alyssa of Vero Beach, and Miami based muralists Samara Ash and Nicole 'Nico' Holderbaum. Nico was not able to join us in the studio but Zoey and Samara, who only recently finished their work were able to come in and talk about their art, and impact that it has had on the Arts District.

Learn more about Zoey Alyssa's work on her website at: and Samara Ash's art can be viewed on her website at: 'Nico' Holderbaum's website is:
