Phase one of the creative placemaking crane mural project, organized by the Pulaski County Tribe (PCT), is scheduled to take place on June 10th with the 11th as a rain date. Indiana artist Zach Medler is closely watching the weather forecast, hoping for sunshine as he prepares to kick off his work of art to enhance the rural vibe in downtown Medaryville, IN.
The public is invited to come and enjoy Zach creating artwork to be enjoyed for years to come. Phase one is a basic crane and a few wetland components. PCT will work to raise funds to complete the mural with additional wildlife and wetland elements.
For your enjoyment, we have a coloring page of a crane available. We encourage you to add your artistic touch and share your artwork on social media channels to help spread the word about the project and celebrate the cranes.
Additional celebration components coming soon include:
- Origami cranes made by local high school students. These will be made available in various locations throughout the county to celebrate and support the project.
- Public submission of wetland components for consideration of inclusion in phase two.
The cranes are a main attraction of the Jasper-Pulaski Fish & Wildlife Area. Visitors can witness their beauty from mid-October through mid-December. In order to see them up close and personal, binoculars or a spotting scope are recommended. You can learn more at the Indiana DNR website.
