Cowboy Mural

Cowboy Mural.

Grand Forks artist Charles Selberg was 17 years old in 1949 when he painted a mural for Sunny Brook whiskey on the south side of the McCormick Building at 320 Fifth Street North. A week after he finished it, a temperance group had the painting whitewashed, inadvertently preserving the work for years.

In September 2003, the owners of the building gave permission to area artist E. Chandler O’Leary to restore the work.
