The City of Owosso has written and received a Saginaw Bay Watershed Initiative (WIN) grant for the painting of a mural along the James Minor Riverwalk, under the Washington St. bridge. The City has hired Brian Whitfield, a muralist from Lansing, and Owosso artist & instructor Linda Beeman, to help facilitate the painting of this mural. In partnership, with the Friends of the Shiawassee River, Owosso Main Street and Owosso High School art classes, with teachers Jayne Brown and Philip Gobel, there will be 4 groups of volunteers painting the mural on 4 weekends this spring and summer.
Friends of the Shiawassee River needs volunteers for April 7th and April 14th. A combination of all volunteers will finish on April 28th. It will be a type of paint-by-number and will turn out beautifully! Please join us!
