Tailgate Motor Co.
Fremont, NE
This mural at the Tailgate Motor Co. was installed in 2014 for the Siemer Auto Center. It depicts a Texaco station and a service attendant. The piece is entitled "Friendly Service at Siemer Auto Center." Tailgate has been there since around 2018. [map]

Cowboy Ruckus
Vaughn, NM
Cowboy Ruckus was created by Cerney and installed in 2016. The two 18-foot-tall cowboys appear to be arguing from opposite sides of the highway. Unlike other Cerney pieces, these signs are double-sided so they can be seen from either direction of the road between Vaughn and Roswell. [map]

Welcome to Roswell
Roswell, NM
Welcome to Roswell was installed in 2013 as a gift to the city. Roswell is a UFO-themed town. The signs depict a stranded UFO and alien family being assisted by locals. Two months after the signs were installed, the alien baby on the left was stolen. Cerney created a second one and it was installed later that year. There are solar-powered LED lights on the UFO which keeps the signs lit at night. For more, see this website. [map]

Jigsaw Ranch
Centrahoma, OK
Cerney built the cow panels for the Jigsaw Ranch in 2011. The now-damaged larger cow was 12 feet tall. There is another panel with a rancher building a black bull out of jigsaw pieces which I missed. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

"Muffler Men"
Calumet, OK
The "Muffler Men" project was a collaboration between John Cerney and Scott Farmer. The 18-foot-tall panels were installed in 2019. They pay tribute to the fiberglass statues that was built in the 1960s. The three pieces include a Miss Uniroyal, a standard Paul Bunyan, and a Gas Station Attendant doing the twist. For more, see this website. [map]

Dell Osso Family Farm
Lathrop, CA
This 40-foot-wide painted sign at the Dell'Osso Family Farm was created in 2007 by Carlos Lopez from Stockton, CA. I don't know if Lopez ever worked with Cerney but he was definitely influenced by him. The sign was repainted in 2021. [map]
