*Sunday 3/17/24, 1pm:  "The Miller's Mural"  At the Verona Senior Center, 108 Paoli St, Verona, WI. 

How does an inconspicuous brick wall become a portal into another time?  At our meeting this month we will learn the story behind the wonderful mural that appeared on the north side of Miller’s last summer, which features scenes from Verona’s past along with the meaningfully-chosen inscription “Community”.  It is no coincidence that this happened to materialize on a canvas made from this century-old Verona family business!

Our guest will be Amber Roach from Miller and Sons, and artist Chad Caso.  They will share how the idea came about to do something fun and meaningful with this otherwise ordinary exterior wall, and how the project and design evolved long before the painting started.  Chad, who you may have seen measuring out and painting the mural on a lift last summer, will describe the challenges of taking a vision and transforming it into this massive work of art.
