Mural Prints To Be Sold to Pay For Restoration

In June, 2010 Mendel’s Murals will begin selling prints of the Perehudoff murals to help raise the funds required to complete the restoration. The numbered and signed prints will be screen printed from hand-cut stencils using 1953 style type. The work will be performed by Henry VanSeters and by Hal Schrenk. Henry and his wife Cindy own Novatex Graphics, a printing company, and he is the artist who painted the 72 foot tall "Founders" mural on the side of the Drinkle 3 Building. Hal Schrenk owns Hal Schrenk Graphic Design, and he has agreed to provide design work. We have begun lining up merchant outlets where customers will purchase the prints. All the profits will go toward funding the mural restoration.
