The bicycle progression includes a Wright brothers’ bicycle, and
a model produced by the Huffy bicycle factory. The modern
bicycle represents Dayton’s Great Miami Riverway, which
includes the nation’s largest paved trail network.
The flowers, a hummingbird, and a butterfly represent Dayton’s
many parks dedicated to gardens and nature conservatories.
The Carillon bell tower, with 57 bells, is Ohio’s largest bell tower.
A mural in this part of Dayton must include the Thunderbirds, a
reference to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The mural is painted on six 4 ft by 8 ft canvases, and hangs in the Woodman Kroger in Dayton OH. It was completed in Jan 2023.
