During the March GDCA annual neighborhood meeting, Daniel Esperanza with The Baton Rouge Walls Project advised members of the next planned project which was to be a mural on the side of a building at Myrtle and Perkins Road. Well, the Old South Mural is now complete. The mural covers the side of Disk Productions at 1100 Perkins Road. An unveiling of the crowd-fundraised mural was held on Saturday afternoon, July 18. Neighbors gathered to meet Jonathan “Skinny Dope” Brown, the artist/muralist who created the exuberantly colorful, happy scene featuring historical storefronts of Old South Baton Rouge. Skinny is a local artist who has collaborated with the Walls Project on a number of projects before. His artwork can be found on buildings throughout the area.
