Hello Leanne - murals and any art has the ability to highlight/showcase a community in a unique way.  I can definitely see that in your eye-catching post of Historic Route 66 in Kingman Arizona.

That's a great mural, Leanne. I'm seeing more murals in lots of cities (large and small), including in Charlotte.

Years ago when I lived near Chicago, I did have breakfast and lunch at Lou Mitchell's. Route 66 has incredible history including haunted hotels.

I think the murals look great, I have seen them start to rise in other cities as well.

I agree.  Expressing our culture through murals is indeed an art form as well as a visual history.

A lot of interesting towns and cities along Route 66.  We live 1.6 miles off historic Rt. 66 in Golden Valley, AZ. Our guest room is notably called the "66 Room."
