Breaking Away 2 (6th St. Mural)

“Breaking Away 2” is a privately-commissioned mural measuring  45 feet in length and at points exceeding 20 feet in height. It is located on the western facing wall of 114 East 6th Street in Bloomington, Indiana.

Conceived over the summer of 2012 and executed over a period of six days, “Breaking Away 2” is auto-biographical. It revisits consistent themes in Bloomington’s history and serves as a sequel to the 1979 film.

The photos that follow  document the preparatory drawings and mock-ups, the process, and finally, the finished work as a composite of several shots.

Photographic assistance by William Winchestor Claytor.
