Indiana artist Justin Cooper pays tribute to Carmel-born artist and illustrator Franklin Booth (1874-1948) in the design for this mural. Both Cooper and Booth were determined to become artists at a very young age, and both focus on figures and extreme detail in their work. Those who helped create the mural hope that you will take a moment to breathe while experiencing the beauty of this mural.
Booth was a celebrated commercial artist during his time, contributing to popular magazines and product advertisements. His signature style derived from copying the technique of wood engravings using pen and ink.
This project is a partnership between Jiffy Lube and Department of Public Words (DPWords). It is an opportunity to showcase local artist’s designs, beautify the communities with original public art murals and encourage viewers through positive words and images while expressing the goals of both DPWords (positive words empowering people) and Jiffy Lube’s programming: Growing People Through Work. Many volunteers have contributed to the creation of this mural during community celebration paint days.
