    Lately, we have been passing and admiring the Neutral Zone mural project at the RR underpass on our way to the YMCA on West Washington Street. We like it so much that we wish we could see it in a more visible position–perhaps on the Stadium Bridge. The mural is colorful and cheerful–and it raises our spirits to think of the local teens who created it (under their visual arts coordinator Mary Thiefels).

    Nice. When we lived on Miller ten years ago a group from Community High School painted murals under that railroad bridge. It temporarily stopped the endless tagging there that spilled over onto the old coal depot building, Knight’s Market, etc.
