New Tuscaloosa Mural

The City of Tuscaloosa unveiled its latest piece of public art this morning.

It is a huge mural painted on the side of Egan’s Bar with the word Tuscaloosa painted in big, colorful letters. But, if the mural is looked at through a red lens, the word Druid City is revealed.

The mural on Egan’s Bar is one of the ideas city leaders brought back with them from a benchmarking trip.

“We are very excited,” Sandra Wolf, Executive Director of the Arts and Humanities Council said. “I think that the community can appreciate the wall just the way it is without that red reveal, but that red reveal just adds a little bit of intrigue to this first mural.”

The artist is Jason Tetlak. He’s from Jacksonville, Florida and is the developer of the Red Reveal Technique.
