Here's a cool way to turn a boring wall into something special for the entire community to enjoy.

There are so many buildings across New York that lack any uniqueness. They're just big brick walls, without any color to catch the eye. Sure, it's the inside that really matters. But there's nothing cool about a giant white wall with nothing on it.

One grocery store's former employee couldn't agree more. And she decided to turn that boring wall into her own blank canvas.

Schneider's Market, an independently owned grocery store in Kirkwood, just unveiled the most patriotic mural we've seen in quite some time. Mariah Smales was been hard at work, but her enormous painting on the side of the grocery store's outer wall is finally complete.

On the mural she depicts an enormous American flag, taking up a majority of the wall alone. It flies high above a range of mountains, that appear to have the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Statue of Liberty on top of them. To the right is a soldier, taking a knee and showing respect to our nations great flag.

The mural leaves opportunity for more to be added to it, but also does enough to stand on it's own as well. Schneider's hasn't announced any more additions to the mural at this time, but we are excited to see them if they do.

This is a great example of how a local business can make a big impact on their community. They not only supported a local artist, but they added some new color to their town as well. And it was all done through a patriotic tribute that'll last for years to come.

Stunning Mural Transforms Oneonta, NY Eyesore Into Eye Candy

A building that the City of Oneonta plans to demolish, and one of Oneonta, NY's biggest eyesores, has been getting a major makeover thanks to artist James R. Mcilroy, owner of Wolfhound Studio which is a tattoo and art studio at 269 Main Street, Oneonta. Mcilroy has been creating murals on the side of the former Oneonta Sales building on the corner of Market St. and Chestnut St. Extension - a building formerly used as storage by the Twelve Tribes group in Oneonta. Now, instead of focusing on the ugliness of this horrible structure, the eye is drawn instead to the beauty of Mcilroy's artwork. Talk about a transformation!
