I frequently find myself driving east on University, and my eyes are always drawn to the giant Lee logo on the side of the buildling at 110 E. University.

Here’s a Tom’s #Mailbag answer explaining the origins of the mural. 

If you are also a regular passerby, you may have noticed that it’s looking a bit brighter these days. Local artist Glen Davies was tapped to repaint the original, and Champaign Center Partnership posted this video of Davies and Michael Hosier of R Rentals discussing this recent restoration.
