One of Lexington’s most recognizable pieces of art will be getting a complete facelift.

It’s the horse farm mural outside Bluegrass Airport.

The Lexington Herald-Leader says work has already begun on the 7-year-old, 6,000 square foot painting.

About 40% of it has been sand-blasted in the past few weeks.

An airport spokesperson told the newspaper the primer and paint didn’t bond correctly, which caused flaking and other wear. This prompted the revamp.

They say there won’t be any changes made to the mural, except a better, brighter coat of paint.
