There are murals in many of these midwestern towns. I've seen low-key murals on old buildings in Pennsylvania and New York state as well, but there seem to be more in Ohio, and they are nothing if not ambitious. I don't know who sponsors or finances them. This one turns the whole end of a block into trompe-l'œil
As for what is supposed to be going on here in the narrative of the mural, well, I'm just not going there.
