Artist: Kristinn Walsh
Medium: Acrylic paint
Location: DQ parking Lot, former location of the Whistle Pig Drive-Inn, 102 Victoria Ave
“Remember When…” was commissioned by the owners of the former Whistle Pig Drive Inn – the last of the original “burger joint greasy spoon” restaurants in Transcona. The mural’s subject matter is one of nostalgia – depicting Marilyn Monroe (center); Marlon Brando, Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart (cinema side), Elvis, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and The Beatles (music side). The mural was originally meant to depict a 1950s drive-in scene, but then became film and music icons of the era. This was artist Kristinn Walsh’s first mural.
