The Messina Mural Project is officially installed! Although the project seems rather small, it was a lot of work! I have a new appreciation for artists like Isaiah Zagar who create large scale murals on a regular basis. It must take a small army of helpers! All I had was my teenage son who was less than enthusiastic about the process.

The remainder of the artist name tags were installed under each mosaic and artist Lynn Dubnicka's mosaic fish were added to the outdoor gallery wall.

It was a beautiful day and everything went smoothly except for a small invasion of love bugs. The critters were into everything including my water bucket, grout pail and a few pairs were even getting stuck into the mastic as I was applying the name tags!
If you've never driven through Southwest Florida in May, you probably have no idea how annoying "love bugs" can be. The front of some vehicles are completely covered with the squashed critters. Luckily they weren't out in force.
- The local paper may be doing a story about the project - I'll keep everyone posted.
- I am going to set up a mini blog for the project that will include ALL of the photos that I took over the course of the project and I will include links to the participating artists' website.
