Largest Collection of Richard Haas Murals

Homewood now boasts the largest collection of Richard Haas murals anywhere in the world. Haas, a world-renowned painter specializing in large, 3D illusion murals, was first invited to Homewood in the early 1980s.

Haas' Dixie Highway mural deserves special mention, as it's actually on the old Dixie Highway, a famous route before Route 66 was born.
