The Rockabilly Murals were painted by Nashville artist Brian Tull. Tull, a McNairy County native, is well-known for his photorealistic images depicting the 1930s through 1950s. Tull is the son of Leo and Phyllis Tull of Selmer. View the artists’ website. The Tennessee Arts Commission funded a grant by Arts in McNairy to sponsor the public art and murals in Rockabilly Park. The grant provided $23,000 in funding toward the murals and metalwork at the park.
