'Mega mural' complete — let's party

Posted By on Tue, May 17, 2016 at 11:32 AM

Concrete Couch and friends have put the finishing touches on their spectacular 4-by-98-foot mosaic and ceramic tile mural on a wall in Penrose Library's lower parking lot. 

According to director Steve Wood, the Penrose Library All Community Mural concept has been 22 years in the making. Hundreds of volunteer hours over the last few months from several working "hub groups" around town ultimately made the whole effort happen, in conjunction with the recent Community Built Association conference held here. 

This evening at 5, the nonprofit will host a celebration at the mural site if you haven't been by to check it out yet. (Hey, maybe you can return that overdue book on the way.) 

Here's a look at the finished product, plus some photos of progress along the way courtesy Concrete Couch.
