The Shur Mural Project

I Spy: August 2017

by Sally Bjork

From the September, 2017 issue

August's I Spy is "the mural on the side of Pieology" near State and Liberty, writes Amy Thomas--aka "the exterior of the Barracuda R & D facility," says Kirsten Jensen. But to townies like Dan Romanchik, it's "the east wall of the Jacobson's/Borders building."

It's "the Shur Mural," say Silvia and Lucy Ruiz, and a "great community building project," adds Barb Oliver. "Omari Rush is the young man responsible for the Shur! Mural Project," writes David Karl about the endeavor that creatively engaged the community in beautifying a graffiti-tagged alley. "Paint by numbers guided the volunteers who painted it," says Pat O'Brien.

Artists Mary Thiefels of TreeTown Murals and Danijel Matanic designed and executed the mural and paint-by-number layout as well as overseeing the forty-nine volunteers who painted it, Karl adds. "Every time I walk by this mural it brings a smile to my face, both for its beauty and its idea of community service."

Twenty-one people correctly identified the Shur! mural. Our winner, drawn randomly, is Judi Taylor. She will take her $25 gift certificate at Old National Bank.
