Starry, Starry Night

Starry, Starry Night


CLARKSVILLE, Tennessee – Artist Olasubomi Aka-Bashorum painted this mural (formal name: #STARRYNIGHTCLARKSVILLE) in 2018 on a very visible side of a commercial building in downtown Clarksville, which is approximately 50 miles from Nashville. He drew inspiration from Clarksville itself instead of the imaginary village in Provence that Vincent van Gogh depicted under pulsating sweeps and swirls of a night sky. Aka-Bashorum’s work features the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center and the Montgomery County Courthouse, both nearby. The mural is 120-feet long. Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” is at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and not visible from inside a motorcoach. Olasubomi Aka-Bashorum was born in Nigeria and grew up in Oklahoma before settling in Tennessee. (Photo by Tom Adkinson)
