New artwork is coming to Main Street in Charles City later this summer.
Mayor Dean Andrews says a joint effort by the City and the Charles City Arts Center will bring two new murals to buildings in July.
Andrews says artist Erik Burke of Reno, Nevada, and New York muralist, Daya, are scheduled to be in town July 18-20th to complete the artwork in time for a “grand opening” during the Party in the Park on Friday, July 30th.
He says most of the cost is being paid through grants from the Cultured Entertainment District and Facade Improvement funds and fundraising to cover the remaining cost will start soon. Andrews also says if their application through AARP is approved, a third mural could be added.
