Green Bay native finishes largest mural in area


From Green Bay Press Gazette:

GREEN BAY – A new mural in Green Bay is bringing the largest display of outdoor color yet to the arts district on Main Street.

The 109-foot mural was spray-painted on the back wall of Kuehn Printing, 620 Main St., over the past month by artist Beau Thomas

The painting displays the city’s most iconic locations, including the Fox River, the Leo Frigo Memorial Bridge and downtown buildings.

Thomas has been painting for 10 years. He is a native to Green Bay, so this opportunity was especially important to him.

The mural is part of Olde Main Street, Inc.’s Art on Main program, which aims to bring art out of galleries and onto streets for the community to see.

How does Thomas feel about his painting being on display for decades to come?

“It’s going to be a big piece for a long time, so I’ll be forever proud.”
