Long Description:
"In the city of Moorhead, Mandel Mertz has received a grant to paint a mural on the east exterior wall of the Junkyard Brewing Company."

"Mertz received a grant from the Lake Region Arts Council to start the creation of the mural. The Minnesota State Legislature made this funding possible. The proceeds from the fund can only be spent on the arts, arts education and arts access, and to preserve Minnesota’s history and cultural heritage. Mertz received twelve hundred dollars to start the masterpiece.

Mertz looked all over Moorhead to find the perfect area to create. She had emailed the mayor of Moorhead and Junkyard Brewing Company had been an option they discussed. After getting in contact with the manager, Junkyard was excited to have Mandel’s artistic palette added to their company. The east exterior of Junkyard will now be home to the mural forever.

The mural will be based on Moorhead’s history, which will include the Hjemkomst, the railroad, an Ojibwe-inspired element, dandelions and catfish. “The mural started off very busy but I have cut out different aspects and simplified the mural,” says Mertz."
