Unveiled: The Sonny Bryan's Dallas Mural

Unveiled: The Sonny Bryan's Dallas Mural

2 minute read

Sonny Bryan's on Inwood has long been a beloved spot for locals and visitors alike to enjoy delicious barbecue and soak up the nostalgic atmosphere. Now, we have an exciting new addition that's sure to delight anyone who stops by: a stunning Dallas mural created in partnership with artist Mari Pohlman.

The mural is a true work of art that invites viewers to take a closer look. Pohlman drew inspiration from the work of Salvador Dali, and it's easy to see the influence of the surrealist master in the mural's rich colors and hidden clues. One of the most striking elements of the mural is the way it incorporates various nods to Dallas' rich history and culture. For instance, the Mercedes is a nod to J.R. Ewing, the iconic character from the classic TV series "Dallas" and an iconic Southwest plane glides over the city.

Of course, one of the most fun aspects of the mural is the way it invites viewers to spot various hidden details like Easter eggs. For example, the building behind the hospital features a silhouette of a Dallas icon that sharp-eyed observers are sure to recognize.

Mari Pohlman is a talented artist who has made a name for herself creating large-scale murals throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area and beyond. Her work is often characterized by bold colors and playful imagery, and her passion for public art shines through in every project she takes on.

We hope you will come by and check out the new mural and have a delicious barbecue meal while you're at it! If you snap a photo of yourself at the mural, be sure to tag us @sonnybryans for the chance to be featured on our Instagram page!
