COINCIDENTALLY  BOTH MURALS TOOK 100 HOURS TO PAINT

The original mural features two huge Borgette motorcycles stretching for 100 feet.  The mural took Holdridge 100 hours to complete. In some eyes, the mural became an icon and will be missed.

THE WEST BANK’S JOINT BAR HAS A NEW MURAL.

913 CEDAR AVE S.

Holdridge, (pictured left) Is standing in the wheel to show some scale of the project. The mural is far larger than it appears. A grueling task that takes patience and perseverance. Holdridge says, “Be true to quality & the check will come.”

(Pictured Above)  The new Mural at the Joint Bar in Minneapolis is completed. It features an illusion that makes this building appear to have a few more corners than the original masons planned. The mural required extensive planning and many revisions.

This mural is 100 feet wide and 20 feet tall. There are 370 painted bricks. The bike tires are 7 and 5 feet tall, and took 100 hours to complete

PAINTED IN 2004, THIS MURAL HELD ITS TRUE COLORS FOR 12 YEARS.

THE FRONT ALSO PAINTED IN 2004

will remain with its flames and bikers. No touch up needed here. The paint Holdridge uses is tough and is as colorful as day one.

 

The Hornitos bottle is the third bottle painted in this location.  The others include Jagermeister and Jack Daniels.

This version of the train at the far back of the Joint’s Patio was painted in 2005.

There were 4 other versions throughout the years.

This Mural sits behind the main outdoor bar. It is 40 feet wide and 5 feet tall.

Although they are not now using the black lights that this mural deserves to have shining on it.

It still looks great in its unlit form. Someday this will be a pleasant surprise for the unknowing.

Take a look at the mural in process. Watch the mural get completed in just 3 minutes.
