Significant Elements mural

I just finished a mural for Significant Elements, at 212 Center Street in Ithaca, in celebration of this creative recycling business's 20th anniversary.  This mural depicts the history and multiple uses of the circa 1880 warehouse, from undergarment and carriage manufacturing, to airplane parts testing to furniture warehouse, as well as the history of the neighborhood.

This mural project was funded by grants from Tompkins Charitable Gift Fund and The Service League, with sponsorship from Benjamin Moore, Ithaca Painting and Decorating, and individual donations.

Here are some photos of the process, from the original vandalism-prone blank wall through the final product.
