Cola recently became host to a seven-story cedar. American artist Andrew Schoultz created the acrylic-and-spray paint rendering of Lebanon's national tree on the side of a residential block in the south Beirut district.Schoultz said a project curator, an old friend, had invited him to take part in this show.When an artist goes into a city for the first time and creates a mural, the artist mused, whether in the U.S. or in the Middle East, he holds a certain responsibility.Schoultz said he chose the cedar after researching the country and found this beautiful tree on the flag. When he learned it was a cedar, he researched Bsharri's Cedars of God grove, saying he was drawn to its history. Noting the market-oriented culture of contemporary fine art, Schoultz said that he started doing art for art's sake.
