Story Behind the Mural


This mural features a map of the entire length of Route 66. The mural is 66 feet in length and was designed by Bob from his sickbed just a short time before he passed away in 2009.  It was painted in Bob's memory by members of the Waldmire family and about 500 of Bob's friends from along the entire Mother Road. If you stand close to the mural, you will notice hundreds of hand prints.  Each person who worked on Bob's mural, and who felt they had been touched by Bob's art, left a hand print.  Completed in May 2011. 

Artist


Designed by Route 66 artist and icon, Bob Waldmire.
