See ‘The Dude’ Lawton, Fort Sill’s Newest Mural on the Eastside!
There's a brand new mural in Lawton, Fort Sill thanks to the Shaw Brothers. You can find it on the east side of town at Pat's Car Wash located at 2502 East Gore Blvd. This latest addition to Lawton's ever-growing masterful murals features Jeff Bridges as 'The Dude' from the 1998 cult classic 'The Big Lebowski.'
It's an amazing mural and has already started getting a lot of attention. I swung by during lunch today to take a quick picture and there were already people there taking selfies and other photos of the new mural. The pictures really don't do it justice, you have to see it for yourself to really appreciate its TOTAL EPICNESS!
Check out the new mural of 'The Dude' at Pat's Car Wash 2502 E. Gore Blvd.
As mentioned above the new mural was painted by the Shaw Brothers. Terry, and Darry Shaw. Both are accomplished artists and if you've been in Lawton a while I'm sure you've heard those names before. They've painted several murals around town and are always on the lookout for new places and walls they can paint. I'm a big fan and always look forward to seeing their work around town and they never disappoint!
We're lucky to have such talented artists in town and even luckier to be able to enjoy all their murals while out and about. It really brings a lot of smiles and happiness that's for sure. I love driving around town and seeing all the murals and every so often a new one pops up like magic. Somehow I always miss seeing them work on these murals and end up seeing them when it's all finished. They're like paint ninjas. One day there's a blank wall, the next a fully painted mural. It's crazy how fast they can get these HUGE wall paintings done!
See 'The Dude' in action. Hit play & watch the official trailer for 'The Big Lebowski.'
Being a BIG FAN of the film it's awesome to see this mural of 'The Dude' right here in Lawton, Fort Sill. I think I'm going to have to re-watch it sometime soon, it's been a while since I've seen it and I'm sure it's streaming somewhere. Maybe this weekend I'll hit play on it. If you've never seen 'The Big Lebowski' you have to see it!
If you're looking for more of the Shaw Brother's mural masterpieces around town there's a TON of them. Some of our favorites include the Cheech & Chong murals on the side of the Sticky Depot located at 707 S.W. 11th Street. There's also an amazing mural of Bob Marley at that same location. Then there are the many faces of Johnny Depp on the corner of Gore Blvd. and 14th Street on the side of CrossHair Cuts Barbershop located at 1410 W. Gore Blvd. No list would be complete without mentioning the Rambo mural on the side of Ares State Armory located at 2210 W. Gore Blvd. These are just a few of their EPIC murals.
