“A new mural is going up at Ben’s Chili Bowl, for a four-month period while Ben’s decides on who will be featured in their next permanent mural. This mural is designed by Cory Stowers.”

You can see what the old mural looked like when it first went up in Sept. 2012 here. We spoke about the Bill Cosby controversy here.
