LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Drivers rounding the bend at Mary and Logan streets in Louisville’s Shelby Park neighborhood near downtown will have the sense that a giant crow is hovering above them.

The crow is the central element of a dramatic new mural on the side of the Sober Solutions building at that intersection that artist Wilfred Sieg III has been working on from a lift bucket recently. It’s part of an ongoing project of the Shelby Park Neighborhood Association to call attention to the neighborhood’s main entrances and corridors.

The association also is promoting the area’s history with a new state highway historical marker, the neighborhood’s second, that will be unveiled at 5 p.m. on Dec. 22. It tells about the old Shelby Street streetcar barn and the “Schnitzelburg Loop,” completed in 1907.
