About the Event

The mural will illustrate the long history of train travel to Oconomowoc and the present train traffic throughout the city. Specifically, the train designed by renowned Wisconsin artist Brooks Stevens, Twin Cities Hiawatha, that traveled from Chicago to the Twin Cities stopping in Oconomowoc. Along with trains, the mural imagery will include passengers, train signs, tracks, sky, the Oconomowoc Depot, and city landscape.

This first-of-it's-kind project is being funded by the generous support of the Imagine a Day Courtney Bella Foundation along with the ORBIS Corporation. Sherwin-Williams is also supporting to project by donating the paint our artists are using. Thank you to the City of Oconomowoc for partnering with our young artists to make this project possible.
