Over the past two weeks I have received some great photos to use for the mural that will be in the new Ellsworth Elementary School lobby opening in January. I have also had the pleasure of talking with some local photographers about their work. Through the month of August we will be working to design the mural based on the pictures we have available or find through more contacts.
