January is the month of New Year’s Resolutions as well as Old Lang Syne. So when looking at things that were, and thinking about what might be, we encourage you to frequent the downtown Mural “The Way We Were” at the Alleyway between 113 and 121 Washington Street.
Gone but not forgotten, several of Naperville‘s favorite downtown businesses and every day scenes are captured in this nostalgic Mural. Created by local artists Marianne Lisson Kuhn and Liza Netzley-Hopkins, the detailed trompe l’oeil images, engage viewers in the every day life of a simpler, smaller Naperville of the 1960s.
So if you’re of that age genre you might reminisce at what things were like back then, and if you weren’t even born at that time, you might enjoy viewing the same. Regardless, a trip there to take in one of Century Walk’s finest Murals will get your New Year off to a great start!
