Hey, That's Bob Waldmire Up on the Wall

From the April 12th Pontiac (Il) Community News.

The first section of the new 66 foot long (get it?) mural of Bob Waldmire went up today.

It isn't completed, though. The rest will be painted this spring during the event surrounding the opening of the city's latest museum, the Pontiac-Oakland Automobile Museum. I'm thinking the event may refer to the Red Carpet Corridor party from Joliet to Towanda this May 7-8th.

It will be finished at that time by local artists (probably my close cousins, the WallDogs), residents and celebrities (perhaps a Michael Wallis sighting?).

The mural is on Bob Waldmire's beloved Route 66 and near the Route 66 Museum and Hall of Fame which contains Bob's ever-present VW van and "school bus home."
