Blooming in the Bright Alley

This 60 foot mural, Whale vs. Squid, was just completed at the end of August by artists Karl Addison and Pixel.Tron. I don't know if the artists planted the variety of sunflowers in front of it, but all that intense color works together to brighten this alley off Cherry St. between 25th and 26th Ave. That is where you will find the entrance to the Twilight Exit, a very popular dive bar. The Twilight moved from its old location on Madison to its new digs at the beginning of the year. I think they now occupy the space vacated by JoAnna's restaurant and jazz club, but am not sure.

wooow, such a pleasing photo.
i'll put it on my desktop, if you don't mind. it will help me get trough the transition from summer to cold autumn, which i don't particularly like.

The mural is gorgeous, but your photo outshines it. Great; I love it.
