Have You Seen It?
Have you seen the newest mural in the community? A joint venture with the Grinnell Area Arts Council and Grinnell College's Offices of International Student Affairs, and Community Enhancement and Engagement has led to the community's newest mural, located on the south side of McNally's Foods.
The mural, designed by Grinnell College student Tommy (Guhn) Lee '22, was painted by groups of community volunteers over the past two weeks. The public art piece is now complete with colorful depictions of what people can expect to eat, see and experience in Grinnell. One of Tommy's goals was to help increase visual sources of joy and reiterate that everyone from around the world is welcome in Grinnell.
Initiatives like this public art piece can help foster community engagement, and ultimately help enhance quality of life for a community's residents and visitors alike. Make sure you check out Grinnell's newest mural the next time you're near McNally's!
