A New Mural In The Loop Pays Tribute To Local Music Celebrties


  • Dani Kinnison

Take a look at the Loop's new mural, freshly painted on the side of Vintage Vinyl. Created by Washington University graduates Leah Nixon and Macy Moore, the mural features hometown musicians Nelly, Chuck Berry, Miles Davis, Grace Bumbry and Willie Mae Ford Smith.

The mural project is sponsored by the Loop Special Business District and Washington University--a new mural will be installed every year by a new group of students.

Vintage Vinyl co-owner Lew Price was somewhat surprised at the mural's sudden appearance. "One day I showed up and it was going up," Price said. "It's a really good start and we're happy to have it, and we're hoping the next one will be even more elaborate and more musical."
