Here are more mural pictures from downtown Shreveport. Bossier has quite a few, but very different in character. I'll get around to getting more pictures soon.
Mr. Maggio (or his family) has this sign repainted every year. It is never faded, but always fresh and pristine. All of his delivery trucks have pictures of Italian scenes, including the Mona Lisa. I love them all. I love the sentiment of an immigrant who became an American success, never forgot his roots, and expresses his love for his adopted country. I love the fact that a mundane delivery truck becomes a work of art and the personality that decides that it is worth the extra expense to create a mobile visual feast.
