It is ART that makes life, makes interest, makes importance,
and I know of no substitute for the FORCE and BEAUTY of its process.
~ Henry James
Roger Cooke Mural Restoration
By Becky Hawley
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!
