As Waunakee says goodbye to 2016, the community can look forward to several new projects in the year to come.

Washington Ave. “The objective was to make the mural look like it’s in motion, falling down onto the awning, which I also designed,” says artist Jonathan Brown.

Washington Ave. building owned by Hovde Properties (a live video feed of the final stages of installation can be viewed here). But Brown isn’t the only one who’s helped bring this project to life.
