Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

This is but a sample of Hal Samples's photos taken Saturday afternoon and evening, as Frank Campagna and his band of artists were wrapping up the Deep Ellum Mural Project just a few weeks after kick-off. (The tunnel's gone; long live the tunnel!) Patrick M. is compiling the whole wingding for a forthcoming slide show, but here's a glimpse of Campagna, the proud papa for whom every Deep Ellum wall is a canvas in need of covering. (Say, is that Walker Texas Railey behind him?)

Update: The slide show is up.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
