Hutchinson Mural Unveiling 06 Oct 17

On Saturday, October 7th, a new mural will be unveiled in Hutchinson.

The mural is a rendition of Les Kouba’s “By the Country Store” painting (see below).

The mural will be on the south end of the west side of the Ace Hardware building at 105 Washington Avenue East.

Artist David Wegsheid created the mural.

He gave an update to the city council at Tuesday night’s meeting.

He says the mural will be installed and covered on Friday, October 6th.

Then on Saturday, October 7th, he says the festivities will begin at about 10:45am.

Wegsheid says the Coca-Cola company will have representatives and products on hand also, in that Kouba had direct ties to the company.

Wegscheid says the three people in the painting, and on the mural, represent Les Kouba from childhood through maturity.
