Colleen Rockey has completed the 1974 Mural Restoration Project in Kalamazoo in the month of June. Colleen originally painted the mural when she was a new graduate of Western Michigan University with a BFA in painting. “I was excited for the opportunity. I submitted an abstract landscape and won a First Place Award and the stipend for the wall facing what is now known as Corporation Alley. I view my restoration of this public art as a benefit for the City of Kalamazoo and a gift to the people who reside there.”
