Nail Your Landing

Artist: Mike Wirth with Arko and Drew Newpher

Category Murals


This mural is all about history. The Dilworth Artisan Station building was one of the original mills located in the South End area. During WWI, the mill converted to making parachutes for the war effort. Find the landing zone and snap your photo so that you “nail your landing.” On the rail trail side, bottles of pop and gas bubbles celebrate the factory which manufactured carbonated sodas. On the third side, a multi-cultural Rosie the Riveter reminds us of the women who worked in factories of the past and today. At the far-right corner, a giant leg brings out the hosiery mill history and a certain holiday film classic. The oversized frame is a connection to the current and long-operating framing business still located in the building.
