Scenes from the unveiling of the Warehouse mural

Posted By on Fri, Sep 23, 2011 at 10:31 AM

Last night, Matthew Schniper and I attended the grand opening of Douglas Rouse's Warehouse mural, what Rouse calls "the mothership" of his 12 Mural Project.

Major Mandolin (Charles Prignano) strums on a wagon next to a sculpture of Rouse on the west wall.

Finished Sept. 9, the mural is stunning. It wraps around the three most visible walls of the building, and features a sunny, verdant promenade populated by Rouse's friends, family and community members, including, to our surprise, Indy publisher John Weiss and his two sons. (The Indy was a sponsor of the project, we knew that much.) Rouse's mother kneels in a garden bed, and his father pauses by two large sculptures depicting Rouse and his wife. On another wall, late local artist Timber (Timothy Kirwan) rides a bike.

There also was a presentation of brand-new clothing. You can also see it here.
For his next project, Rouse will begin working on a wall at CorePower Yoga on North Nevada Avenue. Look out for updates on that in the future.
