Norfolk, Virginia, USA

"Mural" comes to the Anglophone World from La Francophonie. The word for wall in French is le mur. From it, we get mural, today used as shorthand for mural painting, a painting on a wall. What you see along Norfolk's Granby Street is paint on a wall, for sure, but does it qualify as a painting? Is it a mural? And, does it deserve a Gold Medal? [2014]
