Local news sites, including TWC news, are abuzz over a fresh, new Willie Nelson mural, which appeared last week—though, surprisingly, not on Willie Nelson Boulevard, the honorary name of a stretch of West Second Street.
The mural faces the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless on Seventh Street at Neches. The artist, Wiley Ross, told TWC he got a lot of positive feedback about the mural from the clientele.
Ross also said he'd been wanting to do the mural for a while, and things just came together on it. There's no word on whether those things might have come together to coincide with the recent release of Willie's latest, Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin.
