Nashville, IL 62263
Title of the artwork: “Barnyard”
Artists: Zoltan Sepeshy
I love the colors of this mural. They are bright and cheerful. I also feel like the rooster takes the show as the main subject of the piece. The viewer can see how he is perched on top of the plow and staring down at the other farm animals. I think this rooster had a lot to say at the time. Or maybe he just needed to vent. Anyway.
I also like how the mural is on the back wall. When you enter the building the visitor has a great view just by walking through the doors. Most art is on either side of the vestibule and not visible until you are entirely inside the lobby.
What are you thoughts on this mural? Please comment and share below.
