pbr mural

Painted on the side of the 1029 Bar at this address is a mural done by the Broken Crow design collective.

The mural depicts a duo of squirrels paddling in a Pabst Blue Ribbon can canoe. Either this is a celebration of the wildlife and leisure activities of the area (drinking and canoeing- typically best not mixed), or it is an environmentally conscious commentary. Either way, it's pretty cool.

Here's how they did it.

Located on the exterior wall of the Autographics business at this intersection is a Bob Dylan mural.

Designed by Sergey Trubetskoy (a University of Minnesota graphic design major) and financed by Autographics, this mural was completed in 2006. It was the first of a series of murals in the Dinkytown and Marcy-Holmes neighborhoods that celebrate the 60's and 70's culture in the area.
