ARTISTIC?FLAIR–Those heading down Main Street to the Broad Street intersection may have noticed some added color to the Mercantile Exchange building. A freshly painted mural adorns the wall. L’Anse officials are hoping to expand this initial work with additional projects. Pictured are Aleah Maskew, left, and Brittany Brown putting detail into the picture.

Pedestrians, motorists, and others may have noticed a little more color at the intersection of Main and Broad Streets in downtown L’Anse. Several weeks ago, a large mural appeared on the rear of the Mercantile Exchange building. A joint effort between our two area high school art teachers—Viktoria Klein of Baraga and Linda Lohman of L’Anse, and a half-dozen BHS advanced art students, produced the final product. L’Anse Village Manager Bob LaFave said the village contacted Lohman about the idea last fall. Klein said Lohman asked her to assist and things took off from there. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
