Paint has started to fly… Work begins on the Woonsocket Mural

The Woonsocket Development Corporation would like to announce that the mural they have been raising funds for has now been started. Local artist, Kenzee Schafer, has started painting the mural on the long building on the north end of Dumont Avenue across the street to the east of Lake Prior. According to Gay Swenson, President of the Woonsocket Development Corporation, “The mural will be of Lake Prior over a hundred years ago, when the town had its first major [population] boom. While the painting is from long before colored photos, the mural will be anything but. The building will feature many bright colors and rich blues, but will include the major buildings of the time and a festival over the water with different boats and even some fishing. There will also be many other elements that will truly make the mural belong to Woonsocket, the town with the beautiful lake.”

Swenson reported that the mural fund is at $24,072.84 right now. There is still $6,000 needed to be raised. Anyone who would like to help can send their donation to Gay Swenson, 23020 397th Ave., Woonsocket, SD 57385. Thank you goes out to everyone who has already donated to make this mural a reality.
