Murals Rock Rapids

Twenty six murals currently dot the landscape of Rock Rapids, Iowa, June 6, 2013, and more are expected. Rock Rapids Mural Society member Norma Jansma explains the mural project began in 2002 as a way of telling the history of the small town. (photo by Jerry Mennenga ©)

Story Street—artist Tammy Hoppe

Fourteenth Mural

“Originally painted for Ragbrai in 1999, this Story Street Mural was the first one in Rock Rapids. Never completely finished, the mural slowly succumbed to time and fell into disrepair until in 2005 the Rock Rapids Mural Society adopted it, inviting the original artist, Tammy Hopped, to restore this work of art, a depiction of Story Street as it looked back in the past.”
