NEW Palmer Arena Mural

DANVILLE — Working along busy Main Street in Danville brought Chicago artist Marina Ross attention from passersby on the mural she painted this week on the north side of the David S. Palmer Arena.

Drivers have honked at her, and yelled out Johnny Cash or John Mellencamp, the subjects of her mural.

This is the first of possibly one or two more murals arena General Manager Joe Dunagan wants to see on the outside of the arena.

Dunagan has a long list of past performers who have played at the arena through the years. Performers have ranged from Guns N’ Roses to Heavy D & the Boyz to Willie Nelson and Reba McEntire.
