Meldrum Park Mural Project Is Very Colorful
The Whittier School students inspired mural at Meldrum Park is looking great !!
What started as a discussion about being involved and connected in the world is turning into a massive art project. Ms. Lela Himmerich, a teacher at Whittier inspired the students.
Meldrum Park is between Cliff and Cleveland Avenues on the north side of Sixth Street. The wall being turned into art is part of a city water storage facility. It is 18′ tall at it’s highest point and is about 150″ long.
The Local Arts Council is assisting with the project and two professional mural creators are on sight supervising the creation. You are invited to stop by, grab a brush, and help.
Donations to help defray costs and to pay for a plaque noting the history and helpers are being taken at any Wells Fargo Bank. The name of the account is:
“The Sioux Falls Arts Council Donation Account.”
I visited the park earlier this week. My little camera couldn’t get the job done, so I chose to take pictures of children assisting with the work. It is huge. It is colorful. It has meaning. I hope you will stop by.
