New mural on My Sports Locker says hope for cancer survival


Adam Long works on the "O" in hope as part of the mural on the side of My Sports Locker 106 N. Rogers St. on Friday, Aug. 5, 2022. The mural spells out the word HOPE using images of cancer survivors and family members arms honoring people touched by cancer. Some arms in the mural belong to people from the Bloomington/Monroe County community.

Adam Long misses his father, J.D. Long, but found a way to honor not only his dad but a lot of other people in the Bloomington area and beyond with a mural on the side of My Sports Locker, at 106 N. Rogers St. near the corner with Kirkwood Avenue.

Long’s father, holding up a 1-year-old version of Long, is painted at the left of the mural, with the hands and arms of other people who have been touched by cancer to the right.

Long’s father and mother, Claudia, live in Florida and the last time Long visited his dad there, he said he knew it was probably his last visit. Long’s father died July 24.
