12’x40’ mural of commemorating one of Dallas’ great figures, Stanley Marcus. Not only did he make Neiman Marcus a household name worldwide, but he also was instrumental in putting Dallas on the map as a center of art and culture.
Shannon Wynne commissioned this mural in the Cedars, where Stanley grew up as a way of celebrating his great contributions.
For local restaurateur Shannon Wynne, a two-story tribute to Stanley Marcus is not enough.
Wynne recently commissioned artist Brent Hale to paint a giant black-and-white mural of the larger-than-life man, smoking an oversize cigar, on the side of one of his properties in The Cedars, the historically Jewish neighborhood where Marcus grew up. “I just wanted to do a tribute to Stanley because his family grew up in the neighborhood and nobody’s done anything,” Wynne says.
