Last night, Matthew Schniper and I attended the grand opening of Douglas Rouse's Warehouse mural, what Rouse calls "the mothership" of his 12 Mural Project.
Finished Sept. 9, the mural is stunning. It wraps around the three most visible walls of the building, and features a sunny, verdant promenade populated by Rouse's friends, family and community members, including, to our surprise, Indy publisher John Weiss and his two sons. (The Indy was a sponsor of the project, we knew that much.) Rouse's mother kneels in a garden bed, and his father pauses by two large sculptures depicting Rouse and his wife. On another wall, late local artist Timber (Timothy Kirwan) rides a bike.

There also was a presentation of brand-new clothing. You can also see it here.
For his next project, Rouse will begin working on a wall at CorePower Yoga on North Nevada Avenue. Look out for updates on that in the future.
