Monday Mural Grove City PA

I'm linking up at Monday Mural hosted by Oakland Daily Photo.

April 2014 - Grove City PA

Last week I posted the second mural painted in Grove City. This was the first.

The first mural created is located by the Gazebo. Three female interns were hired to create this mural by interviewing the Grove City Historical Society and then asking for help from the community to paint squares of canvas. The interns set up shop in a local home and sketched the mural and then had people from George Junior, the nursing homes, and schools come and paint individual canvases which were later put together like a puzzle. This mural is more whimsical in its design aesthetic and is filled with bright colors that pop against the neutral colored buildings.

  2. I love the patterns in this, especially the quilt block farmland! And the biplane reminds me of that editorial cartoonist from The Star (in the 60s and 70s) who always had a biplane up in the corner with a banner trailing... wish I could remember his name.

    Anyway, the bakery in my mural is at Dundurn and Aberdeen. It is very good. They can also be found at a lot of markets and special events in Hamilton and Halton.
