Cole Brothers Air Show Mural

Ben & Joe Diaz of Diaz Sign Art were project leaders for this summer’s Walldog event: A Hog in Dog Heaven in Kewanee, IL. This mural featured the Cole Brothers Air Show, which started in Kewanee in 1946 & ran until the mid 60s.  Like the Diaz Brothers, the core group of the air show was the Cole brothers & their families.  During the event, several of the family members of the men depicted in the mural stopped by to help paint.  The core crew for this mural featured: Donna & Roger Adams, Kit & Brad Bandow, Brandy & Mike Harper, Janell Matas & Deena & Mike Rodino.  15 murals were painted during this event including the Prairie Chicken Beer mural.
