In late July 2019 an international group of artists traveled to Jacksonville Illinois to repaint the murals on Jacksonville's downtown buildings. The team I worked with repainted the mural honoring the Eli Bridge Company which is located across the street from the Jacksonville Municipal Building. While in town our team toured Eli's manufacturing facility.
