Dane Arts Mural Arts and the City of Monona are pleased to present a design for the up-coming Monona mural, which has been designed by local artist Rhea Ewing in conjunction with members of the Ho-Chunk Nation. (Click on the above image for a larger view).
The theme of the mural was chosen through a city-wide poll. The design features animals and habitats found abundantly in Monona. Elements were chosen with guidance from members of the Whitehorse family, who have called the Monona area home for countless generations. Pictured in the mural is Ho-Chunk elder and well-known artist Harry Whitehorse. A key to the other rich symbolism in the mural’s elements will be available through a QR-code painted on the mural. The mural will be painted spring 2017 with students at MG21 Liberal Arts Charter School and members of the Monona community under the direction of DAMA lead artists. Paint for the mural is being donated by Hallman Lindsey. It will be installed in May/June at Monona Well #3 at 6500 Raywood Road and West Broadway, across from South Towne Mall.
