In just one week, we have finished the 1402 E. Broadway mural! Here are some behind the scenes photos…
Since the East Toledo Family Center and a water conservation group called Glisten helped fund our project, I was given the theme “Children + Water” to work with for the viaduct.
The mural started out as a scale drawing in pen and was then simplified on transparencies. The transparency images were projected onto the wall and traced before we could begin painting. The BGSU students did an amazing job with the details! I even recruited a few of my middle school students to come out and help!
Special thanks to Gordon Ricketts from BG, Jodi Gross, and Mary Wilson from the East Toledo Family Center for a great opportunity to paint some toledo pride on the wall. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed meeting everyone from the neighborhood!
