Prairie scene mural in the works
Local artist Mickey Harris works on a prairie landscape mural at the Menno Community Garden between the Smidt Appliance building and Zeeb Insurance building on Fifth Street in Menno Sunday morning, June 22. Harris is painting the Smidt Appliance building wall that bounds the garden on the north. Harris has his studio in the Smidt Appliance building. The scene, which Harris said he hopes to have completed in time for the July 4 celebration, will feature images inspired by the pioneer roots of the Menno-area community.
