New Mural Artist Selected

Story by WBGZ Radio

A new mural will be painted this summer on a wall near the location of the Farmer's and Artisan's Market in Alton.   Alton Main Street recently selected local artist and business owner Jeanie Cousley to oversee the work that will begin this week and is scheduled to be completed by the end of August.  The mural will be on the north wall of the parking lot at 9th and Piasa Streets.

Alton Main Street Executive Director Sara McGibany says Cousley was one of five artists to submit proposals for the theme: "A River Runs Through Us"

McGibany comment

Public participation in the mural should take place in August, with local children asked to paint a portion of the wall under the direction of Cousley.
