DAC dedicates new mural
The multi-panel nature scene features three-dimensional pop-ups of birds and fish.
The Hubbard County Developmental Achievement Center (DAC) dedicated a new mural Wednesday at the Salvage Depot.
The multi-panel painting with 3-D accents depicts a lake scene with trees, fish and loons.
According to Emily Whitaker with the DAC’s Salvage Depot thrift store, DAC clients and staff at multiple sites – including the Salvage Depot, Barely Used, the Tin Ceiling and the DAC’s main facility – collaborated in the “color by numbers” project, based on a design by artist Hannah Spry.
“We also used our woodworking skills to cut out the shapes and paint those and add them to the mural,” Whitaker said. “Everybody participated in this in one way or another to make it happen.”
