Appalachia Press building, 108 Salem Ave. S.E.
Found this on the mural HERE : This second mural workshopped by the teens in the Roanoke Youth Arts Connections program required approval from the Roanoke Architectural Review Board as Appalachia Press is in a historic building. The exposed raw brick, though ideal for a cave painting scene, made for a difficult surface to paint on. Artist John Kayrouz created the design, inspired by the Lascaux caves in France, based on the teens’ idea, and Mim Young and Scott Noel painted it themselves. Young sees the cave art as providing a sort of bridge between the modern, avant garde art museum next door and the historic district beside it.

Sorry I wasn't around last week. Nick took the week off and I was still so busy getting all the Christmas stuff finished. Planned to be around for Willy Nilly Friday but just didn't make it...Will be up and running this Friday!
