6th St. construction murals: our 1500th entry

This blog has been online since July 12, 2006. In that time, we've posted 1500 entries. Most of them had photos of murals, and some had mural news. For this 1500th entry, we've got photos of the cloth murals hung along the construction fencing that starts on 4th Avenue just south of 6th Street, continues west along 6th Street down 5th Avenue, then back to 6th Street, ending a bit west of 5th Avenue.

Some of the panels are advertising for the project being built behind the fence; others promote 4th Avenue and its businesses. I haven't included all of those. Some of the artists' panels have been stolen, and some of those replaced. These photos show the murals on November 12 and December 2, 2019. One shows a blank section of fence; after that is a photo of the mural that was originally there, before it was stolen; the photo is courtesy of the artist, Marcy Ellis.
