I will add photos, comments, etc. as time moves on. Most of my artistic focus is on the creation and installation of a community mural in Oshkosh, WI. Although I am not an art leader in the community, I believe the work I am doing is artistic in the sense that Murals are not allowed in Oshkosh so this effort will push the limits of art in Oshkosh and move Art into the public view.

Community Foundation supports Oshkosh mural
The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation has generously agreed to match the first $5,000 in donation to the Oshkosh Mural Project. This means each dollar you donate potentially will be "doubled." Donations can be made on line at www.OshkoshAreaCF.org
by selecting "Oshkosh Community Mural Fund." You may also send a check payable to: OACF- Community Mural, 230 Ohio Street, Suite 100 Oshkosh, WI 54902.
Several other local businesses have already supported this project through materials, labor, and technical assistance. They include the Time Community Theatre, Omni Paint and Glass, Oshkosh Lumber, Evergreen Retirement Community, Kitz and Pfiel, 100 N. Main, Digital Printing Innovations, The Oshkosh Public Museum, Walgreen's and Bru-Nick Builders. The Oshkosh Northwestern has begun a photo history of the project as well as given us exceptional coverage (see July 6, 2010 article Murals In & Out.) We want to thank all of the above for your prideful assistance. With the cooperation of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation, you are offered a chance to become our partner by giving generously. This project will enhance the community through art, preserve our history, as well as deepen the sense of pride in Oshkosh.
If you have questions or know a group who would like to paint on the mural, please call Rich Norenberg at (920) 235-9997. Girl Scouts paint first On July 14th at he 100 N. Main building. Several Wednesday and Thursday evenings through October are available. Please come and see history be made. Better yet, be part of history, be part of the Oshkosh Community Mural by giving at the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation. All donations are tax deductible and will go directly to the construction, artwork, maintenance and installation of the mural. Thank you for your support,
and Leif Larson
