2017 Mural unveilings October 7

The Midway Public Art Working Group, Midway Murals, and Hamline University are now completing 2 new projects for 2017. The first is a gorgeous mural restoration project of Picnic at Newell Park, a 30 year-old mural by local artist Chris Baird at the corner of Snelling and Englewood Avenues (see video below). The second is an exciting new mural, just across the street at 742 Snelling Avenue, by talented local emerging artist Ilana Budenosky called Stop Requested. Come check out the murals at the Hamline Elementary Fall Festival October 7 from 12-4:30pm. There will be opportunities to make new public art, listen to live music, and meet new friends and neighbors. We can't wait to see you there!
