New Mural Installed on the Highland Strip

A new mural of a blue-eyed, lifelike tiger has been installed on the Highland Strip near the University of Memphis.

The mural, Tiger Eye, was designed by the Loeb Properties team and installed over several days by SignWorks Memphis. 

Using a special technique, the team installed the mural by using a heat-gun application which stretched the printed material over the wall, sticking it to the brick and mortar. 

"The dramatic visual element celebrates the University of Memphis Tigers and reflects the community spirit of  the university neighborhood," Loeb officials said in a press release. 

U of M president, David Rudd approves, calling the mural "imposing, striking and well done" in a tweet on Sunday.
