City of Murals

Mural Location:

111 First Avenue


Curt “Signman” Nelson

Mural Number:

11 – Completed 2004

This mural is unique in many ways. First of all, it’s the only mural that is also a sign. It’s also unique because of its 3-d aspect ‘ look at the painter’s leg. Plus it’s unique because it’s a muralist self-portrait. The man painting the mural is ‘ the man who painted the mural ‘ Curt Nelson

The sign is also the first official sign that promotes Rock Rapids as a City of Murals. It was (obviously) sponsored by the Community Affairs Corporation

Other artist credits: “Dray Wagon” (1), “Ladies of the Night (3)”, “Rapid Speedway(9)”
