Sponsored by Illinois River Valley Arts Council in cooperation with the IVCanDo 20/20 Strategic Plan. The project manager is Judy Hoyle, who wrote grants, organized all the efforts from start to finish. Volunteers helped design and paint this mural on 5 sheets of plywood in April, based on the winning drawing by local students.High school students painted 3 of the panels at Illinois Valley High School. 
A huge thank-you to the Selma Community & Education Center which provided the work site for the mural. The City of Cave Junction will apply the protective coating to the eight panels and then mount them to the stage. We hope to do this in early August. Stay tuned!
Contact: Please call: 541-592-4444 during regular business hours  for more information. 
Thanks to everyone who helped with drawing, planning, painting, transporting and fundraising!
