The concept of the Legacy Challenge Mural

When boxing great, Muhammad Ali, made the declaration " I am the greatest" the world in most parts thought that he was being braggadocios.  I believe (as most do now) that he was stating a fact that the world eventually caught up to.  I believe he was divinely given insight into the realm of boxing and simply realized his position.  It is in this very same light that I (Jeremiah Neal) have received the divinely given inspiration to design "The World's Greatest Concept Mural" and I expect to be viewed with skepticism as well- at first- but time will vindicate me just as it did Ali.

My first name, Jeremiah, means "God Exalts" and my last name, Neal, means "Champion."  Put them together and you get my mural and my mission: to exalt champions.

The concept of the Legacy Challenge Mural is this: to give every school, town, state, etc. the opportunity to honor their heroes, post them, compare and share them.  It's like Mount Rushmore and the Hollywood Walk of Fame- combined with the Sports Hall of fame- each school or area votes and heroes are to be added as that area sees fit.

Who's next?

Below are photos of a mural Jeremiah painted on billboard vinyl that is looking for a home.  It is about people of note who were either born in Omaha or who did great things in Omaha.  It is intentionally composed with open space to allow for more images as time goes by to encourage others to be the best that they can be.   Jeremiah will have Heartland Scenic studio fasten the mural to the chosen wall as they have done with other murals he has painted.

Jeremiah is now working on a mural for Muskegon Heights that will be their Legacy Challenge Mural!
