LARGER THAN LIFE

The man behind "The Bird."

Ever wonder who that amazing artist is behind the great FREEB!RDs murals, hanging guitars, Libby waving her burritos or hidden VW buses that greet you around the bend? Well I had the great opportunity to meet long time artist, Lynn Wilkerson, during the final days of painting the soon-to-open Bunker Hill location. Kind, smart and a soulful way about him, Lynn clearly knows what he's doing. Armed with paints, scaffolding and a team of apprentice painters, he has ideas that come to life in each new location. If anyone, he can tell you that "it's been a long strange trip!"
