project overview

Midtown Kroger Mural   

Memphis artist Charlie Forrester created this mural to enliven the walls of the new Kroger on Union Ave. The artist stated, "I wanted to create a mural that utilizes the vibrant life, legacy, and renewal of the midtown Memphis area. I want to incorporate the beauty of the trees in the area as well as the family life that is so important to midtown's growth as well as the foundation of what makes Kroger such a great local grocery store."
