Artist in Residence Michael Rosato, who recently completed the newest Cook Foundation mural on Main Street, has created murals in 22 states in the past 27 years. Viewable from Main Street and Rt. 14,, the mural celebrates T.C. Walker and brings to life his impressive life story. The powerful effect of this art on our community will be the touchstone of Michael’s talk about public art.
