Painter Jake Pinello, of Flat Rabbit Murals, has put the finishing touches on his mural on the west side of the St. Vrain Market. The bucolic farm scene represents the view from Lyons, looking toward the east, and is
meant to honor the agrarian side of Lyons’ culture and history. Market owners Neil and Connie Sullivan, who commissioned the work, are very pleased with the results, and are now looking for ideas for a new mural, by Pinello, for the west side of their carwash (presently it holds an alien coca-cola scene).
Initially, there was some resistance on the part of a few folks in town, about covering up the old mural, which was painted by several Lyons High School art students and their advisor in 1979. What we here at the Lyons Recorder would like to know from you in the public is - Now that the mural is completed, what do you think of it? Thumbs up, or thumbs down?
Vote as often as you like, tell your friends and neighbors, and pose the question on your social media networks. We will have a photo of the mural next to the poll question. Check it out.
