This mural can be found on the West 3rd Street facade of the Groove bar & grill at 125 MacDougal Street. This building is part of the recently-designated South Village Historic District and sits next to three Federal-era individual landmarks.
It was painted by the artist Rico Fonseca in 1999, and depicts a range of musicians from jazz to 1960s rock in a triptych form of three separate panels.
Even though the tiny venues of the Village couldn’t accommodate the kinds of crowds the Beatles were drawing by February 1964, one of their biggest influences, Bob Dylan, famously got his start here. Find out more about Dylan’s connection to this area in past Off the Grid posts and in the designation report for the South Village Historic District.
