The Ovid-Elsie High School National Art Honor Society this summer worked on a Legendary Artists Passage mural in St. Johns, organized by the Clinton County Arts Council and led by muralist Tamara Brown. The mural is located under Business 27 in St. Johns along the Fred Meijer CIS Trail, just north of Railroad Street. The project was structured to be educational while also seeking to promote local talent and engage the community by turning empty walls into public canvases. Eight local groups painted an 8-by-10-foot section on the south side of the underpass, representing a legendary artist. The O-EHS team chose Vincent van Gogh, and designed a portrayal of downtown Ovid in a composition that reflects his style of painting. Participation in this project was made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation.
