The dice are very rusty but the mural has held up well!

Unique dice and mural.

[Betty, 02/14/2017]

Both the mural and dice were completed in 2016. The dice sculpture represents the city's odd slogan, "Eighter from Decatur," and was sculpted by two local brothers. The dice are lit from within at night by color-shifting LEDs.
