Using a building as their canvas, over 100 community members and students from Algoma High School participated in another colorful mural painting project in Algoma Friday. The Algoma Venture Academy along with volunteers in the community began painting the Algoma Book Corner on Third Street. Local artist Don Krumpos who helped collaborate with the project shares the theme behind the new mural.
Krumpos says the crew used over 100 different colors of flat exterior paints to complete the "paint by numbers" mural in about nine hours. One of the goals of the students was to incorporate the school’s motto which is “Ignite, Engage, Connect” while bringing their mission to the downtown.
