Mike Ayers hanging out at Canal Park, between murals
Meet Murals Master Mike

Former BJ Advertising graphics designer Mike Ayers, who did that work for 27 years before Ol’ Blue Walls eliminated the entire marketing department in 2007, is the subject of an article in The Devil Strip, an Akron magazine, which dubs him Akron’s Master of Murals.

Mike, brother of another artistic guy, Chuck Ayers, also a former BJ artist, has become something of a murals artist. He did the Lock 4 mural of jazz greats outside the Civic Theatre.

Akron Rubber Ducks owner Ken Babby hired Ayers to do several interior murals at Canal Park, the minor league team’s baseball home.

He did his first mural while the Quaker Steak and Lube Restaurant in North Canton was being constructed.

Michael and Patricia Ayers have a daughter, Allison Michelle Ayers.
