BearLax Mural, Monticello

Monticello GA BearLax Mural Restoration Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing North Georgia USA 2015

Murals, painted on the sides of prominent buildings in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, were once the preferred way of advertising products from Coca-Cola to laxatives, and almost anything in between. While soda brands seem to dominate the mural landscape, pitches for obscure products and services survive in some locations. The BearLax mural was restored a few years ago as an important document of small-town life. The Georgia Grassroots Art Program, a program of the Georgia Council for the Arts, was responsible for this project.

    Don’t this look like a dandy cure! Maybe Dr. Kirk might consider switching to it for colonoscopies. Looks like it works right fast!
