New mural declares Yelich the MVP

As an artist, small business owner and huge baseball fan, Shawn DeKay couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the Brewers' success than with a mural on the side of his building.

Earlier this year, DeKay, a painter who grew up in Milwaukee, opened a cafe and art collective, Dream Lab, 327 W. National Ave.

"I am super excited about the mural. It's about 90 percent completed and when the rain stops, I'll complete the final details," says DeKay.

The mural is a tribute to Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich, as well as to Walker's Point Latino community. In the mural, Yelich is wearing his Cerveceros uniform and next to his image are the words "Our Town, Crew, MVP."

"Yelich is more than likely to get the MVP, and so this is dedicated to him. And if he doesn't get it then it's 'screw you, he should have gotten it' commentary," says DeKay.
