The Youth Services play area is getting a makeover this Spring.
Mural artist, Sawftsea, is creating a Lake Superior scene outside the Great Room. Using chalk outlines, she sketches the water scenes and then paints for a few hours each day.
“I took an underwater direction”, says Sawftsea, who notes the abundance of natural light that hits the walls. “I plan to paint Great Lakes fish on the walls. I decided to feature the Stannard Rock Lighthouse because it’s an icon in the area.”
Sawftsea says it will take the rest of April to complete her mural. It is her third Marquette mural. She painted an Anishinaabe Mural on Peter White Public Library’s garage on 3rd Street and the Evolve mural on Loyaltees on Baraga Street.
