The Coalition was honored to have the opportunity to display a second mural in the City of Crest Hill, Illinois. An exciting national story, “Women on the Lincoln Highway” is told on this mural. History making events are depicted, featuring Anita King and Alice Ramsey. Each woman used her excellent driving skills to make famous, record setting trips across the country on the early highway route.
These road trips and public appearances were designed for promoting car manufacturing companies, Hollywood studios and the new Lincoln Highway.
Exquisite sepia tones in the painting bring the highly detailed portraits of the
women and their cars to life for the viewer.
