The Gateway Mural
Our artist has completed 90’ and has been paid $34,000 of the total $52,500 cost. He plans to complete the work this summer with a start date of June 22nd.
The Gateway Mural is going to be a 150’ long x 12’ high scenic wildnerness panorama featuring highlights of Southern Oregon. It begins at Boundary Springs and meanders through elements of our area such as farm land, vineyards, river activities, camping, forests, mountains, and will eventually end at the ocean in a sunset.90 feet of the mural has been completed but in order for the project to be complete, we still need to fund the artist and materials to finish out the last 60 feet.
We are raising the final sum to be paid to the artist upon his completion of this project. He will start painting June 22 and anticipates being done by the end of summer. We have a grant in the works, and many local businesses still to approach for their support.
why we’re doing it
The inspiration for this project was my mother. She was an arts enthusiast . It was her wish that people would contribute to any programs supporting the arts. In addition the mural will fill a dreary wall at a major entry point to our main medical complex and cinema.
