After more then a year of planning and several months painting the first local public mural was dedicated this past week. Jeannette Blackmar, Baldwin City Director, kicked off the dedication with an introduction of the lead artists, David Loewenstein and Nick Ward. Loewenstein said that both he and Ward, enjoyed learning about and seeing a part of Douglas County that neither had really seen before.
Describing the helicopters or maple seeds within the mural, Alaina Schiffelbein said,
"Through these windows, you'll be able to catch a glimpse of our past, our present and our hopes for the future."
Blackmar said that the public is invited to join in and help plan another mural at the next meeting on July 13, 2017 at 5 P.M. inside the Lumber Yard Arts Center.
