We’re still stuck on the western themed mural/graffiti that Van posted above. Anybody remember even seeing it? I’m wondering if it isn’t behind a building somewhere (with the dumpsters in front of it).

Any help narrowing down the area to look would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help.

I’m not sure how far out your project plans to extend, but I was driving through Irwin on US30 over the weekend and saw one. It is at the Pizza Hut, Lincoln Highway at Colony Drive [StreetView]. What my son noticed is that it is old enough to feature the Pizza Hut mascot, which they have not used in their marketing for a long time.

Thanks PBeaves, We found it there. Along with some other cool ones, which look the worse for the passing of time.

Thanks Stu, that’s a bit far out of range.

So we think we’ll have our GoogleMap of Murals online March15th. We’ve got over 350 murals and other items of outdoor artwork identified and mapped. Still working on the details

Thanks to everybody for your help.

Um, we found the green faced lady, but the western gunslingers are still AWOL. We only know about this one from the photo Van found on line. I’d love to know if anyone here has ever seen it in real life? If so, recently? Neighborhood? Thanks, guys.

Again, incredible. I wish I could summon a fraction of that creativity and energy.

Anyway, the mural I mentioned, 201 Parkway West Business Park. I tried to get there with nice evening light, but it was already in shadow. I can get better.

Hi edmonds59! (First, great to meet you at lunch on Friday) We finally got to this location, excellent mural, thank you for the lead!

We road out there, from Walker’s Mill on the Panhandle Trail, up to Crafton for a mural, back to Carnegie, then out Campbell’s Run Road. Thanks for a great destination. Cheers, V.

Not a mural but a very cool window up at Macy’s currently, on the Forbes side. I had to put it up somewhere;

I got a good look at this Macy’s window a couple days ago. Don’t know if you can tell, but the airborne cyclist is female. Much easier to see that, and the expression on her face, when you see it up close. It’s one of the windows closer to Smithfield, on Forbes.
