Artist Brings New Mural To Orange Mound

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - A new work of art is now on display in Orange Mound.

A mural was painted on the wall of "The Choo" restaurant on Southern Avenue.

Artist Siphne Sylve says she lives up the street from the restaurant. She was having lunch one day when she decided to ask the owner if she could paint the wall.

Sylve says she was inspired by her surroundings.

“It’s inspired by people, family. It’s a family-owned restaurant,” says Sylve. “It was also inspired the by the train since it was literally right next to railroad tracks."

Sylve also worked with the Memphis Black Arts Alliance to make the mural possible.
