Finishing Touches

Friday, September 27, 2019
Nearly two weeks into his work on the Putnam County Mural Project, artist Key Detail continues his long days of painting on the S & W Feed Center silos. The project is in the homestretch, with only part of the fourth and final mural silo remaining as of Friday evening. The project will be celebrated with a block party on Veterans Memorial Highway from 5-7 p.m. Sunday. Festivities include music from Tad Robinson, a bounce house, food for sale and comments from Key Detail, Mayor Bill Dory and Chris Flegal of the mural committee.

  • I too would like to see some numbers. Are the silos owned by a commissioner? I know alot of organizations gave to this project. Although there are aspects that look very nice,I way hoping for a local artist, as the eitel building looks as equally nice.

  • Beautiful Beautiful. Fantastic job. All of these above questions have pretty much been published in this newspaper. This was not a overnight project. Many many months went into this project.

  • Just out of curiosity, something amazing was just completed in our community and, as always, someone has to find a way to denigrate. Really?!?!

  • Thank you to all of those who put in countless hours of planning, fundraising and decision making for this amazing mural for our community. I am truly in awe of this masterpiece and so incredibly thankful that an eyesore has now become a beautiful canvas of art.

    It looks very nice. Applause to the artist.

    I am sure that the private property owner (a County Commissioner, I believe) is very grateful for the improvements to his property as well.

    So, does this raise the property value? And if so, will it be taxed accordingly?

    Wouldn't this be considered a "gift" (in excess of $10k) in the eyes of the IRS?

  • I'm hoping the private owner will open his wallet and at least re-paint the remaining silos. They look awful now, compared to the newly painted ones.
