The Meaning Behind the Wall - Bowling Green, Ohio

I am so excited that the alley wall is finally complete, it has taken many twists and turns within the past year, Changing from a painted mural to a brick patterned symbolic wall. Many discussions of what would and would not work, Compromises along the way, with the end result well worth it.
So it is FINISHED…. I am so excited AND I just love the end result !!! I feel as if I designed this as a gift to Bowling Green and hope you enjoy its beauty as much as I do , for years to come.
Artist Statement:
Since our family heritage dates back to 1834 when the Shively’s arrived by oxen-team to Bowling Green, we have called it home. In the Mari-times the compass was a good luck symbol for a safe return home. Wherever our family may roam, the compass rose will give us direction and safe travels, knowing our roots will always be home in Bowling Green, Ohio.
