Woman Hopes To Paint Tribute To John Mellencamp

Last updated on Sunday, June 2, 2013

(SEYMOUR) - When Kay Fox looks at the side of the building that houses This Old Guitar music store in downtown Seymour, she doesn’t see a plain brick she sees a mural in honor of Seymour native and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Star John Mellencamp.

But before she can get started, she has to get approval from both Mellencamp and a newly organized downtown review board.

Fox, a local artist who teaches at Southern Indiana Center for the Arts, wants to paint the mural as a way to recognize Mellencamp for his contributions to the arts.

"I've been wanting to do this for years," she said.
