Mural Captures Area Sites

The lobby of the Dodgeville Visitors Center is the home of a new mural by local artist Alicia Rheal. The eight feet high by thirteen feet wide mural depicts historic and contemporary landmarks in Iowa County. All are depicted in a background of typical area scenery. The project was funded by a grant from Point of Beginnings Heritage area and private donations. Stop in during open hours and see if you can identify the various sites celebrated in this piece.
