Unique Cadillac Mountain Sports 5K Race Inspiration for Local Art?



Not many 5K races start inside a mall. That is what makes the Cadillac Mall 5K so unique. Runners start inside the Bangor Mall at the Cadillac Mountain Sports store and then head straight out the doors into the parking lot where they circle the mall and nearby restaurant Oriental Jade for 3.1 miles. After watching the video above, check out this illustration (also below) by local artist A. Correia of Correia CreativeDid life imitate art or was this race inspiration for her design?

  1. Wow! I am that artist and was even unaware of the race! I have always loved the debate around life imitating art and vice versa but never thought I'd be right there in it! Thank you for the share and great thought provoking post!
