Students at Manistique High School are currently working on the new mural. “Columbus”, the name of the original art piece, was designed in 1992 by Peter Max, who was appointed as the official artist for the nation’s Quincentennial Columbus Day festivities. Max is known for using intense bursts of color, often containing much or the entire visible spectrum. At this point, students had approximately 20 hours into the mural. Above, Logan Danz, who came up with the design concept, works on the project. Not pictured are other contributors: David Pratt, Brett Annelin, Chris Freeman, Coby Brazda and Kaleb Kleinowksi.
