14-Story Mural, Largest in the USA

The mural extends around to the other side of building. My car gives good perspective of the size of it.

14-Story Mural, Largest in the USA

Titled "Once in a Millinneium Moon," the mural covers 30,000 square feet, two entire outside walls of a 14-story building. It was a project for Year 2000. The mural contains 19 people and 40 objects, capturing the people of Shreveport, their treasures, triumphs, tragedies. There is a viewing station with a paint-by- number grid that describes each. Many artists worked on this project, some who hung off the side of the building for months.
