Art Wing Mural/Storage Cabinets


From start to finish the Galena ARC art wing mural / storage cabinets has been a community-wide effort. This project shows what miraculous and beautiful things can happen when people give back to their community to make it a better place for all. Several talented, generous, and giving organizations, businesses, and individuals made this happen. This mural will enhance the art experience at the Galena ARC and inspire students for years to come.


The Galena ARC would like to thank the following people for Believing in Us:


Galena Lions Club

Donated funds for the construction of the cabinets. The storage cabinets are used by the art department and the preschool to store art supplies.

Keith Jakel
Built the cabinets. The cabinets are self standing and removable.

Craig, Liz, Padgham and Evelyn Larson
Primed the cabinets and Craig built the shelves.

Wedding Day Bakery /
December 2014 Take the Cake Auction

Donated funds for the painting supplies.

Designed and created by these local National Art Honor Society (NAHS) artists. The group consists of sophomore, junior, and senior high school students from Jo Daviess and Carroll counties. They volunteered their time after school and on weekends during February-April 2015 to complete this amazing mural.
