    City Art on Display

    by DSwede Updated Jul 4, 2016

    If you are walking around downtown, you should be able to spot many large murals on the sides of the buildings. They mostly have a historical theme, such as the Hermann Seele Mural. Some are larger than life and span a block, others are more modest.
