Urban Ruben & the Jacksonville Jaguars
“The Big Show”
Jacksonville’s rich music history is unknown to many outside of the local culturally connected. Ruben’s installation brings light to the contribution the Allman Brothers made to both music and Jax’s history.
“The Allman Brothers Band was one of the most critically admired and commercially successful rock groups of the 1970s and beyond.
The formative period of the Allman Brothers Band was when the pieces of the legendary group came together in Jacksonville’s Riverside neighborhood.
Thank you to Urban Ruben and Jacksonville Jaguars for your support and commitment to Jacksonville’s culture.” The Jaxon
“It was the greatest honor to be immortalized in the city I love and come from. The amazing work from Hiero and the relationships I’ve made with Art Republic will live with me forever. I’m excited for the legacy I will build in honor of this wall.”
– James Simpo
It’s been a long time coming for us to give Jacksonville the work of MOMO. His work is often referred to as the visualization of a song, and this beautiful abstract work transformed the Jax Chamber.
“All thriving, vibrant downtowns have signature public art and Art Republic continues to bring world-class murals to downtown Jacksonville. I want to personally thank Preston Haskell for his commitment to the arts and for funding the mural on the Chamber building. Arts and culture are critical to helping tell a community’s story and we’re proud to be part of this important project.”
– Daniel Davis, President and CEO, JAX Chamber

– Susan Walden, Executive VP, Miller Electric
