Penny Mural has been removed Meanwhile the alley way is still filled with many interesting and wonderful paintings done by local artists, or sponsored by local businesses and the town is planning a new mural for that section of wall.
So I did pretty much zero research on this place when I went, so when I got there to discover the entire alley this mural is in is covered in beautiful artwork I was so pleasantly surprised. I ended up walking around and taking pictures of all the murals all up and down the alley. This is a very beautiful place to stop on your trip.
It is what it is, a mural of pennies. The ally it was in had lots of neat murals though. We happened to stay the night near here for our trip and is the only reason we stopped to look. Wouldn't make a special trip for it.
My kids loved this alley of art. Not only did it have the Mural of Pennies, but there were other great painted murals as well. Sadly, there has been some vandalism to the penny mural and some disgraceful excuse for a human being removed a huge chunk that had "Idaho" on it. It was still fun to see.
It’s gone !!!
Very cool! Lots of community paintings down the whole alley. However it seems the penny one is no longer there, possibly torn down. There is a section under where it used to be that people can glue a penny on for good luck, so bring glue and some pennies!
Great for fun photos and to get out and stretch your legs. Public parking across the street from the mural alley.
We like finding interesting things and stories on our road trips and this seemed like a great spot to check out! It was disappointing how people have pulled parts of the mural off the wall! It didn't look as good as the pictures and I don't think we would have stopped if we'd known it wasn't taken care of and had holes and gaps where people have vandalized.
It's in an alley filled with art and murals. A bit out of the way from the 84 but Mountain Home was a quaint town.
A little bit of artsy in an otherwise normal town. The added murals were a nice surprise as well. Quick stop to take pictures.
Very nice. Nice to read the plaque about why he did it. Reminds us to "Just do it". Change the world.
