Rich Sales, Town of Palisade Administrator, has announced that the selected artist for the Downtown mural is Gayle Madden! The mural will be done in a manner to appear like a sepia photo and highlights many of the elements people relate to in Palisade. The mural will be painted on the entry wall of the public restrooms on north Main Street. The building is being remodeled in the design of the old Livery that was downtown for many years.
No day goes by that the sound of the train does not fill the air here in Palisade so it is proper to have the mural depict a train steaming thru.
There were several ideas submitted but the jury panel felt this mural had the image and feel that it was looking for. When Gayle was informed that her piece was chosen she generously asked that the $1,000.00 award for selection be donated to the Food Bank of the Rockies!!! What a win win for our community.
The jury would like to thank all of the artists that submitted for sharing your art and supporting further development of public art in Palisade.
We will look forward to seeing Gayle share her art with the community. Congratulations Gayle!
