Walldogs Mural Sponsored by PNB
July 14, 2013
Peoples National Bank of Kewanee is proud to sponsor a mural on our downtown Kewanee building by the Walldogs. The Walldogs are a group of painters and muralists from around the globe, headquartered in Illinois, who travel from town to town throughout the Midwest holding mural painting meets. During these meets, the large group of artists visit for four days and paint beautiful and vibrant murals that depict each town's unique history. We are honored that the Walldogs selected Kewanee for their 20th Anniversary meet, and even happier that PNB received a mural.
Peoples National Bank of Kewanee donated $1000 toward the painting of its mural. The PNB mural, by Walldogs sign leaders Ben and Joe Diaz, represents the Cole Bros Air Show. The Cole Bros performed a flying circus act based out of Kewanee from 1946 until the mid 1960s. We want to thank Ben and Joe, as well as everyone else who helped at PNB and the other mural locations, for your great work and beautiful murals. We look forward to showing them off for years to come!
