“We had the
murals sent to Columbus and they did a lot of work to clean up the dirt that built
up over many years, and the lacquer and varnish,” she says, “and they did a
great job because before that they were so dark that you couldn’t really see
them. Now they’re bright. They look wonderful. We’re very pleased with the way
they turned out.”
The exhibit opens this Saturday and will run
through 2015 at Campus Martius Museum
. If you’d like to arrange to bring a
group, call 740-373-3750.
The murals were painted by William Mark Young. The museum thanks Peoples Bancorp, the City of Marietta and Dr. Andrew Weirman of Marietta College for their assistance in the renovation project.
