Michael Cooper is from Franklin, Tennessee. His southern drawl comes gently over the first syllable of certain words, and then so slightly, if you're not listening you'll miss it. He is a muralist by trade, and couldn't say enough nice things about the people who stopped to talk, to buy him a soda, to discuss the weather and his painting. Ed Murray, sponsor of the project and owner of the building, said that Michael is also a pretty fine guitar player, his rendition of "Let It Be" was the best that he'd ever heard. Michael said, "You need to get out more." The two have become good friends over the project's duration.
So, if you're in Cheyenne, be sure and drive over the overpass and take a look at the mural. You might just get that "Let It Be" feeling.
