Tunnelvision by Blue Sky

This fun mural is a "tromp-l'oeil," an optical illusion of a rough-hewn tunnel leading to another world. In 1975 artist Blue Sky was inspired when he saw this alien portal in a dream. With a lot of perseverance he finally got the bank who owned the building to agree to this creative experiment. It does look frighteningly realistic - you may be tempted to drive right through. Just know you'd be hitting the side of a building and not traveling to another dimension! (Submitted by Anthony Von Plinsky)

You’re my boy Blue!
The mural is on the back of this building. As it was in the 1920s and today. In the 1930s this was the home of the 82nd Division before it activated and moved to Fort Bragg/Liberty
