PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - A hulking mural that reigned as a landmark for decades in a northern New Jersey borough is making a comeback.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/1dyXyfn ) part a 200-by-50-foot mural once mounted on the facade of a shuttered department store in Paramus will be on display for the first time in more than two decades next month.

Officials say the mural has been in storage but will be moving to the Art Factory, an artists’ studio space in Paterson, starting Thursday morning.

The menagerie of colors was made by Polish artist Stefan Knapp who painted it with a mop in an airplane hangar. It was placed on the facade of Alexander’s department store, which opened in 1961.

It closed in 1992 and several years later the mural was dismantled.
