This 2015 Douglas Rouse mural is an homage to the business inside: Poor Richard’s Books & Gifts. The whole building was remodeled so that several related businesses, next to each other, could have a unified external architecture. The bookshelf mural is filled with actual “Banned Books” throughout history. The titles of the books chosen by Poor Richard’s to include in this mural are clearly visible in the photos below. This mural promotes the bookstores owner’s support of intellectual freedom. Look at the far right for the signature symbol of the artist (Rouse 66.)

Medium type: Paint (acrylic, oil, etc.)
