Floodwall Artist Says Murals Belong To Him

Jun 25, 2013

The artist who painted many of the floodwall murals in Paducah’s historic downtown district is speaking out against the city for the way officials are handling the restoration of his paintings.

Louisiana-based muralist Robert Dafford says the images from Paducah’s past that decorate the walls along the Ohio River are his images and that only he has the right to restore them.

Paducah commissioners will consider Dafford’s restoration bid at Tuesday's meeting.
