Another Downtown Alpena mural coming next week

ALPENA, Mich. — Downtown Alpena can expect another mural coming next week.

Three weeks ago, Bay City Artist Mark Piotrowski painted this mural which he calls Wave Journeys, on the side of Salon 125. It’s been met with praise from the community of Alpena and many have used it for a backdrop for pictures. It’s part of the Downtown Development Authority’s Fresh Waves Initiative, meant to bring vibrant artwork to the area.

Artist Britt Flood, from Pittsboro, North Carolina, will be in Alpena next week to work on the next mural. She will be working on the Fletcher St. side of the Thunder Bay Theatre’s warehouse and begin on Aug. 24. The public is welcome to take a walk by the theater to witness the project throughout the week.
