A New Art Project Is the Mural of the Story in Music City
by Rich and Laura Lynch
There is a newly commissioned art exhibit recently unveiled in Nashville featuring two large murals completed by local artist Bryan Deese and commissioned by Pickers Original Vodka. The series currently features two large murals showcasing and honoring local musicians honoring Moon Taxi, Chris Scruggs and Guthrie Trapp.
The Chris Scruggs and Guthrie Trapp presentation is prominently positioned on the Bootleggers Inn building on the corner of 2nd Avenue and Broadway while the Moon Taxi mural is located on wall of Exit In at 2208 Elliston Place.
This high-profile artistic undertaking is part Pennington Distilling Company's pledge that $1 for every bottle of Pickers Original Vodka sold at Middle Tennessee bars, restaurants and venues that support live music will be donated to Music Health Alliance. For every $1 donation, MHA is able to provide $30 in life-saving healthcare resources.
Jeff and Jenny Pennington, co-founders of Pickers Vodka, state "We are thankful to be able to support local musicians and artists with this series of murals in the Nashville area. From Nashville to Flora-Bama, we look forward to helping the Music Health Alliance in their mission to support musicians for years to come."
Bryan Deese said, "I'm proud to be painting this series of Pickers Vodka murals celebrating what makes my hometown so special-rich with culture in ways money can't buy."
