The Union Block mural located on the side of the former Secondhand Corners building at the corner of Jefferson and State streets in Hastings is finished and a street party to mark the completion is set for Thursday, December 2nd .
The mural project was commissioned by the Thornapple Arts Council and created on wall space generously donated by building owner Tom Kramer.
Hastings artist J. Maizlish Mole designed and painted the Union Block, a dramatic all white-filled outline of the United States on a black background, with a large red asterisk highlighting Hastings.
The Project was funded by Tom Kramer; the Barry Community Foundation; local philanthropy group Guys Who Give; Wightman Inc.; and three anonymous donors.
The public is invited to attend the Street Party December 2nd for food, drinks, fire, and a celebration of the finished mural from 4:00 to 7:30pm! The celebration is presented by the Thornapple Arts Council, Jaqua Realtors, and mural artist J Maizlish Mole.
