The picture above is one of 43 murals created by Jay Allen our guest on this week's American Road Trip Talk. Jay's sign painting company, Shaw Craft Signs collaborated with renowned muralist Bill Hueg to produce these historic gems in Illinois cities under a grant obtained by the Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition. During our interview Jay will give you the full history of the mural pictured above in Dixon, IL and its connection with a very important American president. Visit the full gallery of these historic murals to see more of these beauties. Jay is affiliated with the Wall Dogs, a national organization of artists who gather to paint murals at cities all over the US.
