Organizers from the Waterloo Center for the Arts sent along some photos of the volunteers repairing the damage done by vandals to the "Our Freedom Story" mural last weekend.
Craig Laue, Development and Marketing Manager of the center, tells KWWL around 30 volunteers came out Friday afternoon to restore the mural to its beloved state, something vandals had tried to take away. Laue says it was a "beautiful thing to see."
WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) - The "Our Freedom Story" mural at the Waterloo Center for the Arts is in need of repairs after being vandalized. And a large group of volunteers are stepping up to do so Friday.
What's more disheartening is that the project was done by local youth, including the Youth Art Team and students from Lowell and Kingsley Elementary Schools.
According to the Waterloo Center for the Arts, at 1 p.m. Friday, crews will repaint/repair sections of the 3,000 square-foot long mural.
The mural is a beloved work of art that's become an important part of the downtown Waterloo landscape, so having multiple volunteers come forward was no surprise.
