Students from the UW Summer Institute help prepare the wall of Modern Printing for a new mural
Be on the lookout for new murals being added to downtown businesses starting this weekend. One mural got help last week when students participating in the UW Summer Institute helped prepare the wall of Modern Printing for a new mural by Travis Ivey. The high school students were tasked with painting the wall white, a huge task that had to be completed before the mural can be painted.
Ivey's mural, "Crossing Sherman Hill," is the first of four new murals planned for this summer. Additional murals are planned for the summer of 2014. Be on the lookout in the coming days as artists Meghan Meier and Jeff Hubbell also start work on their murals.
A big thank you goes out to the 86 participating high school students who volunteered their time and talents to downtown businesses during the UW Summer Institute.
