In the center of the block bordered by Sherman, Columbia, 11th, and Irving, there is the J.C. Auto & Frame Repair shop. It is in the dead center of the block and not visible from the street unless you happen to peer down the alley.

I assure you its work a look. As you’ll see from the following photos, its painted in one continuous mass of street art.
