WORCESTER — Breakfast and lunch regulars of the Miss Worcester Diner will be greeted this week with a beautiful new mural painted by Brooklyn artist Lexi Bella.
As a tribute to her late husband, who helped her purchase the business, chef and owner, Kim Kniskern commissioned Lexi to create an image of she and her husband — Robert “BK” Kniskern, Jr. — to be a permanent part of the city landscape. Working from a photo to capture the likeness of the couple, Lexi finished the piece in her signature style.
While Lexi’s public art pieces can be seen all over the country, she has two pieces at Forest Grove Middle School here in Worcester. One on the back side entrance which she created as a 2018 POW! WOW! Worcester artist, and another inside the school, which she created with Forest Grove students as part of the ArtReach Visiting Artist Program partnership with Worcester Public Schools.
The Miss Worcester Diner was built in 1948 by the Worcester Lunch Car Company. A historic diner serving traditional breakfast and lunch fare, it is located at 302 Southbridge Street, Worcester, Massachusetts.
The Miss Worcester Diner is open 5 AM – 2 PM Monday thru Friday and 6 AM – 2 PM on Saturday and Sunday.
