Local artist Kit Stafford. This eye-catching mural of young Elvis showing off one of his signature dance moves is painted on the side of the alley next to Kermit’s Outlaw Kitchen, a farm-to-table restaurant in downtown Tupelo not far from the small home where Elvis was born. The mural, commissioned in 2017 as part of the Off The Wall: Changing the ARTmosphere in Tupelo Brick by Brick project, depicts Elvis wearing standard jail-issued blues with jail cell bars behind him. The movie, Jailhouse Rock, was released in 1957 starring Elvis Presley.
