“We are very excited to add another mural project to the downtown district with the assistance of the Wisconsin Arts Board and the West Foundation. Our intention is to continue to add permanent art to the downtown to continue the celebration of our local history and creative arts community,” states Tony Fodden, Mainly Manitowoc, Inc.
