The Story of the Murals

It all started with a couple of locals who uncovered an old advertising mural and decided to give it a refresh. Since then, several old murals have been releveled and revived as needed. Many of our new murals were added as a way to dress up some of the less appealing buildings and spaces while they awaited their turn at revitalization. Some were intended to be temporary, but many of them have stayed to bring fun and vibrance to the area.

Joelle Bolt

Several of our murals were painted by local artist, Joelle Bolt. Among them are:

  • Greetings From Mineral Wells Postcard Mural
  • Goodnight Loving Interactive Mural
  • Natalie Rose Mural
  • Classic Cars Series around the Seaman building. *The Seaman is currently being renovated, so these murals have been removed.
  • Italian Landscape Mural inside Pastafina.
  • Joelle also stepped in and lent a hand on many of the other murals. One of those was the Little Girl Saluting Mural.

Shirley Mixon

Only a handful of our murals depict actual people. This is one of them. Shirley Mixon and the mural of her as a little girl were featured in a nearby magazine. You can read it in Hoopla Magazine.

The Mineral Wells Hot Tamale Man

Another life-size piece about a real-life local is that of Fred Estrada, “The Mineral Wells Hot Tamale Man,” who is reported to have sold “The Best Tamales Anywhere”, at 75 cents a dozen, at the corner of Hubbard Street and Oak Avenue for many years. It’s at that same corner of downtown Mineral Wells where his mural greets passersby every day.

Flapper Girl Mural

The first new mural to adorn our downtown was the Flapper Girl Mural. And though it was intended to be one of the temporary murals until the Ritz Theater got a makeover, it has remained. Now, it serves as the backdrop to a fabulous new Ritz marquee sign and it looks great.
