mural 7.12.17

The new mural by artist Ron English on the wall of Ken's Aquarium & Pet Supply on Cerro Gordo Street was nearly complete as of Tuesday.

DECATUR — The nearly completed mural by artist Ron English has become vibrantly visible on the wall of Ken's Aquarium & Pet Supply at 730 E. Cerro Gordo St.

English, a Decatur native who has gone on to international acclaim as a street artist, is in town this week to paint the mural and attend the 40th high school class reunion for Lakeview High School.

The work is one of three planned for this year’s Decatur Mural Project, which will also include art at the corner of West William Street and North Oakland Avenue and the 200 block West Main Street, which will replace the current pot and bamboo mural.
