Hot New Mural in Downtown Jackson


Over the past year, artist Jason Jenkins has been working on an outdoor mural at Martin’s Restaurant & Bar located in Downtown, Jackson. The mural took over a year to complete, because of its scale and detail.

The mural is 142-feet long by 10.5-feet tall and depicts a natural landscape featuring blues musicians. The mural is visible from the Pearl and State Street intersection, which is the main thoroughfare to downtown Jackson.

Below is a time lapse video of the project from beginning to end.
