This mural is done in a distinctive style of three individual paintings, each attached to the building separately. The mural pieces fit together to tell the story of North Aurora’s grand visitor attraction located on the Lincoln Highway, Exposition Park.
The newly paved Lincoln Highway provided easy travel for tourists visiting the scenic Fox River Valley, making this historic amusement park a perfect mural subject for North Aurora. Each painting for the mural showcases entertainment highlights of Exposition Park, all taken from original photos and advertisements for the park. A
soft color pallet and vintage style were selected to compliment the very detailed images;
all inviting the viewer to escape back in time to this one-of-a-kind amusement park.
