This summer Mia Tavonatti and the Power of Words Project will descend once again on the town or Iron Mountain infusing our area with art. The POWP plans to create several public works of art this June and early July. Interested artists and art students that would like to apply for grants and scholarships and work on the POWP Murals should contact Jeff Gurchinoff @ Jeff@powerofwordsproject.org
Jeff is the local POWP representative and has been coordinating all of the preliminary steps between our community, the building owners and the POWP organization.
Voting is all but over, but there is still plenty of work to be done.
Expect to see two brand new murals and possibly two splash of color walls popping up this summer!
The Murals of 2018 are now complete.
