MVS Students Install New Mural in Downtown Dayton

New street art is coming to Dayton, thanks to MVS upper school students!

During the week of May 15, MVS students installed a new mural at Mudlick Tap House (135 E Second St. Dayton), inspired by the building’s history and the history of the 19th century Mudlick Distillery.

Members of the upper school “Art Ignites Change” Immersion group painted the artwork on parachute cloth (polytab) during Immersion Term in January, then visited downtown to put the mural up in fair spring weather. The Mudlick mural is the first in Dayton to be painted using this parachute cloth technique. Congratulations to the Art Ignites Change students and their leaders, art teacher Mr. Ward and Makerspace teacher Mrs. Hallinan!
