Bricktown Welcomes New 13,000-Square-Foot Mural

A new attraction now resides in Bricktown, Oklahoma City. The entertainment district welcomes a massive mural that not only draws people closer, but also speaks to a rich history and deep connection between the community and its local businesses.

The 13,000-square-foot mural was painted by artist Rick Sinnet on the north side of the Rocktown Climbing Gym, A former grain silo. The mural weaves a story that unites businesses in the city with the entire community. Sinnett utilizes different bold lines and bright colors all over the 128 feet wide and 100 feet tall structure.

According to Sinnett, the mural depicts the symbolisms of the city. In the mural, you can see the state blanket, the three massive buffalo and the Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher, the state bird. Sinnet spent a number of days working on the mural with the help of some friends. The mural has been named This Land.

The mural, which was conceptually conceived years before, started late due to a two-year planning process. Sinnett also plans to paint the side south of the building, but with no definite start or completion date yet.
