Mural To Be Painted on Oakland Ave.the Week of July 31

July 26th, 2017

The second of three murals to be painted for the Decatur Mural Project in 2017 will be at 100 block of S. Oakland Ave, Decatur, IL (west wall of Garcia's Pizza building) in the Millikin-area business neighborhood known as Oakwood.  

The mural is sponsored by Michael and Susan Vitale. Additional materials and equipment assistance are being provided by Oakwood Business Association, Lowe's, and Sunbelt Rentals.

The DAAC Public Art Committee and building owner have selected a design by local artist Eric Weatherford.  He will complete the mural during the week of July 31-August 3, 2017.

Weatherford is a Decatur resident and 2014 graduate of Millikin University. He describes his design as an attempt to capture the essence of Oakwood "where friends and family come together to enjoy good food, great drinks, and even better music" and "break away from the daily grind."
