Alpine Honors Texas Art and Music with Mural Dedication
Cleburne artist Stylle Read unveiled his work July 30 on the newest of his many murals around Alpine. This one is on the back wall of Printco, facing north. ArtWalk had a formal dedication ceremony along with a barbeque and street fair on Murphy Street, sponsored by Big Bend Telephone. But weather slowed the work and it was not completed in time for the dedication. When finished, it will portray 60 classic Texas musicians in a layout inspired by the Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover. Read has painted more than seven murals around Alpine including two of the first at the corner of Holland Avenue and 5th Street. More of Stylle's projects can be found at Stylleread.com
