Cynvia Arthur received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in 1972. A native of Salisbury, she began painting a historical mural in downtown Salisbury in 1978, on an outside wall of Maxwell Furniture Company. The mural was dedicated in 1980 but was not completed until 1981. Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources, Sara Hodgkins, was the keynote speaker at the dedication ceremonies. Over $30,000 had to be raised to fund the painting of the mural, which depicts scenes of turn-of-the-century life in Rowan County.
