Clarksville Starry Night
420 Madison Street, Clarksville, TN 37040
Clarksville's Starry Night is a 120' wide x 40' tall mural by artist Olasubomi Aka-Bashorum.
Depicting the influences of Vincent van Gogh, the mural showcases two iconic Clarksville spired buildings, the Customs House Museum & Cultural Center and the Montgomery County Courthouse beneath the distinctive starry night sky.
""We talked a lot at a local deli about things that the city would like, and accept, in a mural, and through talking with several different people, it came down to this theme that is being created,"" Aka-Bashorun told The Leaf Chronicle. ""Through the Starry Night creation, I felt that it would be awesome for the buildings to seem to disappear into the nighttime skies, as daylight ended each day.""
The project was funded by Two Rivers Company, a non-profit entity charged with the redevelopment of the downtown and Riverfront areas, along with private donations.
