Murals more than meets the eye

From Ken Thomas Beaver Dam Daily Citizen:

Work continues to bring the Walldog mural painters to Beaver Dam to add more striking murals to the sides of downtown buildings.

It is an ongoing effort, and involves one mural this summer and up to 15 in 2017.

The first scene, painted by Walldog muralists in 2013, depicts a cozy kitchen with information related to the Monarch Range factory that ignited Beaver Dam’s economy for generations. Although few signs of the multibillion dollar industry remain, memories of the industry run deep in the city’s consciousness. The mural was installed on the south side of the Richards Insurance building at 123 N. Spring St.
