Cool Mural in Nashville
(I’m on vacation this week)


An abandoned concrete silo looms over a neighborhood in Nashville, which was nearly torn down. Instead, it’s become the centerpiece of the community’s redevelopment.  A 15-story commemorative painting of an elderly man who lived nearly all his life within sight of the silo, was created.
