Annie Glidden Mural

An entire wall in DeKalb, Illinois is taken up with a mural celebrating the city:  corn, barbed wire, the old post office, and Annie Glidden.  I liked the way the mural didn’t cover all the brick wall, but worked with the bricks and windows.

    I had to look up Annie Glidden, since I’d never heard of her before. She sounds like a remarkable woman. Thanks for the introduction!

    Years ago I actually visited the barbed wire museum :).

    A beautifully executed Mural. The colours are soft and it so much more than a portrait – cleverly weaving between, and ‘behind’, the windows. Artists who produce this type of work so often don’t get the recognition they deserve
