McLean and Barksdale murals move ahead

We are proud to announce that we have officially received word that our mural plans for the McLean and Barksdale underpasses have been approved through Union Pacific! We apologize for the delay.

This stage of the process took a bit longer than we anticipated due to the difficulty of locating the appropriate department for approval within Union Pacific and then providing them with the information that they required for their legal department.

Now that Union Pacific has given us the green light, we simply must get approval from the City of Memphis and we will be able to proceed with the murals once the weather warms up a tad, hopefully in early springtime.

To stay up to date on the current status of the project, visit our website (, check out our Facebook page ( and Twitter (@cooperyoung).

Should you have any questions, or be interested in helping with either mural, please feel welcome to email us at
