The world’s largest indoor automobile mural is located in the basement garage beneath one the buildings in the Iron Gate Motor Condos in Naperville.

The 10,000-square-foot mural titled “Auto-mobility On the Shoulders of Giants” not only is a brief journey through history but depicts the iconic cars of the world and the men who built them.

The idea for the grand mural came from Iron Gate developer and founder Tom Burgess, who wanted something to fill the empty concrete walls in the storage garage under the 5 O’Clock Tower, aptly named because the clock always is set to 5 o’clock.

Instead of dull gray, Burgess said he wanted to create a colorful and lasting piece for future owners to understand the passion behind the construction of Iron Gate.
