Posted in Preston Arts & Culture

PRESTON, MN – Preston Public Library has been awarded a Legacy Community Collaboration grant from SELCO (Southeastern Libraries Cooperating) to create a mural for the north wall of the building that houses both Preston Public Library and City Hall. Artist and former Preston resident Alison Love Unzelman will create fourteen 4’ x 8’ aluminum panels that, when hung together on the building’s exterior, will create a 16’ x 28’ mural.

Library Director Elizabeth Anderson says, “We are grateful for the community partnerships that will enable us to have a large piece of public art in our community that expresses the many aspects of life in Preston, our sense of history, and our hope for our community’s future.”

Community partners for the mural project are the Preston Area Arts Council, the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation, Preston Area Community Foundation, Fillmore Central Schools, Christ Lutheran Church, Geraldine Daley, the City of Preston, the Southeast Minnesota Arts Council and the Preston Library Board.
