Mural surrounds pump house at Stephenson Park

Neighborhood kids put their hands to a mural on a pump house yesterday at Stephenson Park in Escanaba. 

The Bonifas Arts Center and artist Jim Finlan are painting a wrap-around mural depicting the four seasons and activities in the park.

Finlan says he wants the kids to feel a part of the project.

"The hands are to add color to the mural, offer a childish aspect to it and it bring the community's kids to the mural to be involved. Then they have memories," Finlan said.

The mural is funded by a Prosperous Places Grant from the Regional Prosperity Initiative.
