(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A new 1,800 square foot mural now adorns the back wall of Durbin Bowl in Lawrenceburg, overlooking Todd Creech Memorial Park.
The mural, organized by Adam Gilliam of local business Adam’s Art & Supply, was unveiled during the Lawrenceburg Fall Fest Lunch with the Mayor Thursday afternoon. Although the tarp hiding the massive mural wasn't quite big enough to cover the whole wall, it did leave the centerpiece to the imagination until it was dropped.
Measuring 100 feet wide by 18 feet high, the mural's focuses on Peggy. For those unfamiliar, Peggy is the Pegasus-shaped funny car encased in glass outside the Lawrenceburg American Legion on Front Street.
Also appearing just below Peggy is the Memorial to the Common Man clock. The clock displays the time 8:30. Gilliam said that's a nod to Blacklist skate shop -- which uses the number 86 in its marketing -- located next door.
Other buildings shown in the mural are the Lawrenceburg Public Library, Dearborn County Courthouse, St. Lawrence Church, Hamline Chapel, Ivy Tech Community College, Hollywood Casino. The uncompleted Lawrenceburg Event Center and Hotel even makes an appearance.
Eagle 99.3 previously spoke to Gilliam about the mural project, funded by the City of Lawrenceburg. Read more here.
