Did you know that students from Grace King High School also painted seven wall murals in Fat City? 16 art students painted public murals depicting the unique character of Fat City at the intersection near Edenborn & West Esplanade.
This long mural right near R&O's Restaurant in Bucktown was painted by Robert Dafford and Kelly Turan. It's a tribute to Bucktown's past, featuring fishing boats, wildlife, seafood and other symbols of bygone Bucktown.
Right across the river from our famous neighbor is Gretna. I've already mentioned the Popeyes mural, but there's also a stunning mural on the German-American Cultural Center. Painted by Robert Dafford, this mural depicts scenes of Gretna's German heritage.
Local artist, Keith Eccles teamed up with the Popeyes Foundation to create the "Love That" mural that can be found on 1st Street & Huey P Long Ave. This wall art was featured in a national Popeyes TV commercial for popcorn shrimp that aired on television in 2019.
