Item Details
Ricky’s first large scale mural, painted in April of 2013 on the south side of the historic Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, California. Entirely crowd-funded by Ricky, this 3000 sq. ft. mural is the largest of its kind in Sonoma County (60’ wide x 50’ tall). Best places to view this mural are the parking lot of Petaluma Market or from the top of the parking garage across the street from Petaluma Market. In 2015, Claus Brigmann, with the help of Mike Hollibaugh, built a solar-powered LED lighting system to illuminate the mural after dark. Photo by Scott Hess -
