"Signaling History" murals installed in Shorewood
A few months ago I was chosen along with 10 others be part of a beautification project for the Village of Shorewood in Wisconsin. The project, called “Signaling History”, was to cover the metal utility boxes located at each traffic light with murals by local artists. The brief was to reflect Shorewood history in the mural, but other than that the artists were free to create what they wanted. I created the painting at left, called "Remember the day...". The finished work has been installed at the corner of Capitol and Maryland Avenues in Shorewood, the site of two grade schools.
