Maybe this discussion was bound to happen in a city where murals have been going up at a pretty good clip for several years now.

And it rapidly became about how much the murals could speak to the real Memphis – in other words pro-Memphis but with an edge and more than a nod to the city’s reality. That’s a lot for a mural to pull off.
