Murals in Alpine
Alpine, Texas

The painting was evidently done prior to Alpine getting a library, or else reading was once regarded as an activity that needed to be done away from town.

The post office moved to a new location in September of 2000. County offices now occupy the former building. The mural has remained in place, although viewing is not as easy as it once was.

The hand painted sign on the Crystal Bar caught our attention for it's matter-of-fact artistry. The artist was Style Read. Looking to the right of the Crystal Bar's entrance will give the viewer a look at exactly the same type of landscape that is in the painting.
