Murals by Robert Dafford
The muralist lined up to create the Rosemary Clooney painting is Robert Dafford, whose team painted all but two of the previous ones. Robert Dafford is one of the foremost mural artists in the United States today, with over twenty years of experience and over 200 public works in the U.S., Canada, Belgium, and France. The 46 year old Louisiana native is constantly sought out for his dramatic, large scale illusions.

More than 80 of his murals are listed on his web site along with photographs. They are all amazing, but make sure you check out this 160 foot tall clarinet on the side of a Holiday Inn in New Orleans, and his "Flying Violin" series located here.
