The Mural Content

So what is actually going in the mural?

Below is a list of all the various subjects, people, events, historic events and causes that are going into the Hallowell Mural.  When you see the vast list you will see why the design of this mural has been such a complex, intense process for our artist, Chris Cart, in his desire to create something beautiful—far more than a stack of postage stamp squares.
