American Legion

American Legion/Sterling Mural Society
Sterling, IL

Jennifer was chosen to paint the 19th mural for the city of Sterling’s annual mural event. Working with a team of historians and from their photos, she created a theme about the various aspects of the American Legion members, both past and present. The projection night was attended by many observers, who continued to stop or drive by every day to watch the progression of the images. Twelve days later, with the help of her husband Henry, the mural was completed, signed and formally presented to the public with Jennifer describing the process and the points of interest...including the young girl who came by daily to help wash brushes.
