Spring Green is a quaint small town. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a number of times the past few years to see friends. Every time I go, I’m taken aback by the beauty of the landscape.
Spring Green is also the location of Frank Lloyd Wright’s personal home / school of architecture, and of American Players Theater. People come from near and far to participate in and enjoy the arts here.
I was amazed at how many wonderful people I met. This mural was a project facilitated by an entire community coming together. Shannon Porter from Wilson Creek Pottery is the one that organized it all: getting the wall, the grant, the paint, the lift, and doing all the advertising every step of the way. She's a bit of a miracle worker. Her and Ash housed my team for the week.
I consider myself very lucky to have had Ben Hood there from beginning to end to help paint and run all the media, and Larysa Pyatnochko able to drive up from Chicago two weekends in a row to lend a hand.
Spring Green allowed me creative freedom to make a mural that embodied my experience of the town. I hope the piece brings joy to the inhabitants and visitors for years to come. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity :)
