Restoration to the Bull Durham Smoking Tobacco advertisement began Monday, Oct. 15. The project is being sponsored by Mt. Pleasant Arts IMPACT. The painting is on the side of the Taft-Wiley building at 201 E. Monroe Street in Mt. Pleasant and was originally painted in the 1920s or 30s. Restoration is being done by Clark Signs out of Aledo, Ill. When finished, a picture of a bull will be visible and the sign will read “Genuine Bull Durham Smoking Tobacco The Old Reliable.” The project costs around $1,300. An Arts IMPACT member is funding the project until donations can be raised. Arts IMPACT will be taking donations to the project for $500 and up.
