7. Magnolia Thunderpussy mural

1159 N. High St., Short North

This one is a recent addition to the street art scene. Jon Stommel, a 2009 CCAD grad, led a group of artists in brightening up the northern end of the Short North with this and a coordinating mural across the street on the side of The Garden. Googly-eyed creatures throwing up rainbows often appear in Stommel's work, and the Magnolia mural is no different. As if straight out of a dream, characters of all different shapes and colors cavort in a crazy smorgasbord.
