It always seems impossible until it’s done. One year ago this mural was destroyed by a storm, but if you take a look at it today, it paints an entire different story.
Lead artist, Tony Hendrick has been working day in and day out to complete phase one. Hendrick said coming back to Alpena to redo the mural is bittersweet.
If you ever had a chance to pose by the mural then you know that 13 three-dimensional pieces are still missing. Those fish will be added back in phase two along with another top-secret feature.
Hendrick plans to have the community mural competed sometime next spring.
