Neil Talbott takes the first measurements

After nearly a year in the planning and permitting process, Cottonwood Center for the Arts has finally started work on an artsy 25 foot by 78 foot mural.

Cottonwood Mural End of Day One

Cono Pitinga and Neil safeguard the job site while Sandy Murphy makes yet another paint run for 6 more gallons of paint

The amount of paint needed for the mural seemed to increase exponentially as the day wore on but we still hadn’t lost our one piece of chalk or Cono, our supervisor, by the time the thunder rolled in.
