It was decided that the artist would draw a series of murals around the city representing some lesser-known people, businesses, and customs of the city while adding artistic beauty. The citizens of the York began to get excited and donations were collected to that the painting could begin. The first mural was painted in 1996 depicting an image of the Harley Davidson plant, afterall, York’s nickname is the Factory Capital of the World.
