The artist team led by Brazilian muralist Eduardo Kobra has completed its tribute to Bob Dylan — a massive, colorful mural featuring three faces of the artist at various ages — at 5th & Hennepin.

The team completed the five-story project in less than two weeks. They painted the mural on the west side of the 15 Building, which is owned by R2 Cos. and AIMS Real Estate, a division of Goldman Sachs Asset Management. Hennepin Theatre Trust served as the project manager.

Passersby gathered in the surface parking lot next to the mural to watch the artists, take photos and reflect on the life of the Minnesota icon.
