Super Mario Crashes Into Wall at Sioux Falls Business
Dakota News Now is reporting that a new piece of huge artwork is hitting a wall in Sioux Falls. This huge new mural was commissioned by the owner of Stan Houston and Super Mario fans will absolutely love it!
Fargo artist Lauren Starling was contacted by Stan Houston Equipment's owner after he saw one of her murals in Fargo. She started working on it in June and the old-style Mario mural is close to being finished.
Working for 10 hours a day on the 214-foot-long, and 20-foot-high Super Mario mural has been gratifying for Starling. There has been a lot of lookie-looing action going on while she's been working and to see all the people who played Mario Brothers when they were young making stops to see it is a kick for her.
I wanna make them feel excited. We’re really lucky this piece is located off a pretty busy street. Hopefully, maybe somebody is running errands and they drive by it and see it and are like, ‘That looks like a video game. I wanna go over there, check that out!’ I want people to be excited and drawn to it and check it out. - Artist Lauren Starling via Dakota News Now
If you'd like to see the artist at work, hurry. She'll be finished soon and you can see it on the Stan Houston Equipment building, just off of West 12th Street across the street from Wells Fargo bank.
