Resoborg Mural Celebration

The Good: Strasburg's latest mural has been completed. In the words of the artist Resoborg, "The mural is an abstracted portrait of John Henry Sonner who was a local potter and with the unglazed pot in his hands acts as a metaphor for the town and its unseen potential with a canvas yet to be customized."

The Random: Last week a celebration was held by Staufferstadt Arts to mark the official unveiling of the mural. I made a collage of pictures from the event. 

Sharing with Mosaic Monday.
The Fun: A group of spirited dancers added music and joy to the occasion. Here they are posing with the artist.
