...on Illinois Old Route 66!
Photo of a mural spotted in downtown Pontiac, Illinois. Appropriately, the mural measures 66 feet long and lays out the Route from Chicago, Illinois to Los Angeles, California. The person included on the mural is Bob Waldmire. The following is verbiage included on the mural:
"This mural was designed by Route 66 icon and artist, Bob Waldmire. Bob intended to design and paint this mural for the City of Pontiac (Illinois), but was unable to do so because of his ultimately fatal illness. Instead, the city asked Bob to design a mural which would be painted by others. This mural project was Bob's last major art commission. We remember Bob fondly and hope that this mural, painted by his friends and family, will represent our appreciation of Bob and his passion for Route 66, the Mother Road."
