Mural in Morrison is now complete

The historic mural by Emanuel Martinez, commissioned by the Lariat Loop Heritage Alliance, is now finished. Last week, Emanuel put a few finishing touches on the early panels, including Morrison's famous dinosaurs shown here, and ended his work on the last two panels.

Noted performers from Red Rocks are a real attraction, with passersby often stopping to talk with Emanuel while he worked, as here. His image of Bono, of the band U2, is especially striking.

Later this fall, an interpretive panel identifying the characters and stories in the mural will be mounted on the wall at the lower right.

If you can't stop by to see the mural soon, you'll find more images in this article at Your Hub.
