The Fatherland District mural, found on the backside of The Pavilion East, is a product of Eastside Murals, home base of artists Ian Lawrence and Sterling Goller-Brown. If I decided to dedicate myself to just their work, it would keep me busy for a while. The daylight scene (closeup below) depicts a dog and cyclist hanging out at Bill Martin’s grocery, while on the night side we see dancers in the Pavillion and one of the walkways of The Shoppes on Fatherland, which the Pavillion is part of. While I’m not fond of that spelling of “shops,” this cluster of eclectic small local shops is worth visiting, and tourists are some of their most important customers.
The address of The Pavillion East is 1006 Fatherland, but the front of it actually faces south 11th Street, on the 300 block, a little south of Fatherland. The best way to access the mural is to walk down the alleyway that runs south from Fatherland, halfway between 10th and 11th. You can also walk around back from the front side of the Pavillion. There is parking in front of the Pavillion, and street parking is relatively easy, particularly going south, away from Five Points.
