2013 Murals Project
At our fall picnic on Sunday, October 13, 2013, we celebrated the completion of the Neighborhood Murals Project.
Thanks to a Neighborhood Improvement Grant, we were able to enlist Prospect Hill neighbor-artist Sam Bartlett in summer and fall 2013 to paint murals on the retaining wall at the basketball courts in Building & Trades Park. Sam’s characters and tools of the Trades are fun, cool, and a fine tribute to workers who make our City great. The murals are up, and just need a coat of sealant to preserve them. Thanks to the City of Bloomington, Sam and all the volunteers who donated hours of time to outline, paint, and seal the images!
