It is ART that makes life, makes interest, makes importance,
and I know of no substitute for the FORCE and BEAUTY of its process.

Roger Cooke Mural Restoration

By Becky Hawley

 

We finished the Peaceful Vistas mural on the side of Ace Hardware! The mural was almost lost, but now has an entirely new coat of paint. The only part not repainted, was Roger Cooke’s signature.

Wy'east Artisans Guild - Roger Cooke Mural

Pam Smithsted and I are both Sandy Arts Commissioners and are the lead artists. Micaiah Meyer, Vern Groff and Marcia Morrow, who is also a Sandy Arts Commissioner, participated in the restoration. We had a total of over 281 hours of prep and painting…a big job, but we enjoyed it.

A big thank you to all who participated!
