107 Columbus Ave, Sandusky, OH 44870
With their Bicentennial coming up in 2018, Sandusky reached out asking how to get a Greetings mural for their downtown. A few months later, we wrapped up our 4th Greetings mural in Ohio on the back of the Sandusky State Theatre.
Working closely with the city, we planned the content and design together for the mural. We arrived to town on an exceptionally hot September Sunday and the heat wave continued throughout the week. Fortunately, the city put us up in the Chesapeake Lofts to cool off at night. While in town, we got to hit all the popular local spots like New Sandusky Fish Company, Toft’s ice cream and Mr. Smith’s coffee. We also got to enjoy the Oktoberfest party happening right around the corner from the mural over the weekend.
Half way through the week we got a visit from 8th grade and high school students. We spoke with them inside the State Theater about the importance of public art and how we make a living from the jobs we created while seeing the country.
One of our favorite things was going out on the boat that we painted inside the “K” for the mural. Jason, one the of city board members has a friend we met named Kurt, who took us on a cruise around Lake Erie on his 1963 Lyman made right there in Sandusky. We took off at sunset with some Cameo Pizza, saw the Coal Docks and went up to the shore at Cedar Point, the Roller Coaster Capital of the World.
We met these two guys who are building the new roller coaster at Cedar Point.
