    hi. I originally did the murals for towers Karen’s keepsakes. Bonit painted over the originals. The original was the stairs with a cat going upstairs. Flower pots, Wisteria vines and window. And a girl with a hat box.

      Hi Brent,

      Thanks for commenting! We’re having a mural documenting event tomorrow, March 19, 2017 at Fres.co, 1918 Fresno Street, from 12pm-4pm. It would be great if you could stop by with photos of any murals you’ve painted around Fresno County over the years. We’d like to add them to the map and maybe publish them in the book.

    What Brent says is true. I owned this store, Karen’s Keepsakes for 24 yrs, and I hired all the muralists. — My store had a Victorian/vintage theme for many years, but I changed themes, and had to update my murals from the old-fashioned ones. Mike Bonit was hired to paint the Star Murals seen here, which are still on the building today. A total of 7 artists over 24 yrs. painted murals on the outside of my store (Brent was the third artist I employed). Painting out graffiti and maintaining the bright colors on the Star Murals was an ongoing job which Mike Bonit graciously did gratis for many years. The Michael Jackson & John Lennon murals were the most popular, with people stopping to take their photos by them nearly every day I had my shop there. The Star murals were often used as backdrops for fashion shoots, local news stories about the Tower, and music videos. — Karen Harlow

      This is great to hear, Karen! Thank you for sharing! We’ll be documenting mural information tomorrow, March 19, 2017 at Fres.co, 1918 Fresno Street, from 12pm-4pm. I hope you can come by and share some photos of the murals you’ve had over the years. It would be great to get them all on the map and maybe include some in the photobook.
