Duluth has a new mural, centrally located and most visible on the back windows of the Nacho Daddy building, dubbed Meet Me on Main. It’s a colorful step back in Duluth history, the product of talented local artist Brenda Ehly.
“The location of this mural installation is actually the same one as the scene depicted. The bank is currently the site of The Chocolaterie, and where Parsons Dry Goods once stood, you can now find Good Word Brewing. The city requested a colorful and whimsical interpretation of a historic photograph, and I am honored to have been included in this project.”
If her name sounds familiar, it’s because she is no stranger to the Duluth art scene. You have likely admired her work during one of your visits to Downtown Duluth. Some of her most notable local pieces include:
- Dream Big mural at Hill Street and West Lawrenceville.
- Painted bike rack at Hill Street and West Lawrenceville.
- Two paintings displayed in Maple Street Biscuit Company.
- Interior & exterior signage at both Crave Pie and Harper Row.
- Backdrop for the model train set at the Southeastern Railway Museum.
- Pen & ink depiction of City Hall located inside City Hall as part of our permanent art collection
