The iconic murals on the exterior of our building located at 401 Dauphin Street are extremely popular in the Lower Dauphin area of downtown Mobile. In 2016, four artists, DeAnthony Dulaney, Noelle Goodson, Stallworth and Conz8000 combined their individual techniques to create the mural project. The murals are painted on a series of plywood panels and depict numerous pop culture icons including Muhammad Ali, John Lennon, Tupac Shakur, Michael Jackson, Prince, Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix, Willie Nelson and others.
Over the years, each artist has contributed to the ongoing project at their leisure, often providing touches here and there, as the piece have evolved. Murals add a creative aesthetic to the building which energized the blighted building. We are proud to support these local artists and believe these iconic murals highlight the diversity and resilience of Lower Dauphin.
Property owners, Buzz Jordan and Tom Townsend, are seeking approval for a music and event venue to revitalize the blighted building. Buzz and Tom are committed to improving downtown Mobile, as demonstrated by their other downtown projects, such as the historic renovation of 459 Dauphin Street into a multi-use property and the recent purchase of the A&M Peanut Shop at 209 Dauphin Street.
After renovation, the building will only be in operation for scheduled events. Buzz and Tom will continue to support artists across the region and will make the space available for community use.
The historic brick building was built in 1854 and then converted to Art Moderne style in the 1930s. The building is located in the LoDa area of downtown in Mobile, Alabama. The property sits on the south side of Dauphin Street between the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception to the east and property owned by Hoffman’s Furniture to the west.
