This 30’ high depiction of a 50 foot woman was painted by Corbin Hillam in 2010 for the newly created CityROCK Climbing Center.

It is one of five figures from “old” movies painted on the walls as an homage to building’s previous use as a movie theater. The Attack of the 50 Foot Woman was a black-and-white science fiction film released in 1958. The story features a wealthy heiress who grows to be 50 feet tall after an encounter with an enormous alien in a round spacecraft. (Source: Wikipedia and interview with the artist)
