Nashville Mural Says "Thank You" To Healthcare Workers

As we mark a year of dealing with the worst pandemic in over a hundred years. Nashville now has a mural (11th Ave in The Gulch) that says thank you to healthcare workers... for their tireless efforts to save our family and friends from Covid. And when you look at it through your smartphone, it comes alive!

Sparked by an idea from the "Woody and Jim Show" on 107-5 The River, a small group of dedicated people worked to make this token of appreciation happen. "We just said on-the-air that there ought to be one to honor the sacrifices of our healthcare workers. Then our incredible co-workers started to make it happen".

Acclaimed mural artist Whitney Herrington stepped forward and donated her talents to design, then paint the striking mural.

"We're super excited about this!! What a "Nashville" way to celebrate the healthcare workers who have helped us dig out of this thing over the last year. Woody & Jim hatched this outstanding idea back in January and we knew we had to do it", said Jonathan Shuford, program director and afternoon host at 107-5 The River.

Area real estate mogul and philanthropist, Gary Ashton paid for the materials and paint.

The mural was painted on materials from Smart Art + Craft Supplies. Getting the permissions and legal items handled proved to be no small task for Robin Fomusa, promotion director at iHeart Media Nashville.

Shuford went on to say, "Robin is modest and doesn't accept compliments well, but this project 1000% doesn't happen without her navigating every question and obstacle that got in our way throughout this process. It's a true testament to how lucky we are to have creative people in our corner that are invested in making our community better. Kudos to Woody, Jim, Zac, and Robin for creating something really special!"

And it animates!!

If you go to the gulch and post your pic on social using #iHeartHereos, we donate $1 to Tailgate Brewery's program where they send pizzas to hospital workers at night during their shifts. That's a great way to say thanks. Feed them! It's the least we could do.
