During our recent forays to Pueblo for our upcoming Western Skies episode on Steel Town (September 4, 2011 at 11 a.m.), we revisited and admired once again the amazing Arkansas Levee mural where we were serenaded by The Haunted Windchimes. Here’s a recasting of the original slide show of the entire length of the north side of the levee accompanied by “Swimming Through a Dream” by The Haunted Windchimes.

For more information on the mural project, you can go HERE.

    Thanks for introducing me to this intriguing dimension of Pueblo … and for reminding me of how compelling the music of the Haunted Windchimes can be.

    Yeah, but Colorado Springs has the Olympic mural (ha). Would be interested to know about the history of the levee murals…very cool.

  3. I love our levee mural….one of my favorite things about bicycling our river trails (there is also a kayak course and fly fishing along the levee mural). Pueblo is actually a very cool little town, with a lot of great artists and a booming arts scene (our Creative Corridor won the 2013 Governors Art Award) – and awesome 5pm – 8 pm First Friday Art Walks. It’s really too bad that Pueblo has to look so “junky” from I-25 to the passing by out-of-towners; I’m a 2001 transplant from Colorado Springs, and wouldn’t live anywhere else! <3 (For anyone who wants a peek at our arts scene, I recommend "liking" the Pueblo Creative Corridor on Facebook. 🙂 )
