New Mural to Go Up at Hennepin Technical College
By the end of the summer, Hennepin Technical College will have a mural that tries to capture the spirit of the Brooklyn Park campus.
Artists are painting the murals on canvas at an art studio in Minneapolis. In a few weeks, they will be installed onto a wall at Hennepin Tech. Students and faculty at the college got to weigh in on what the artwork will look like.
“We hope it’s a really sweet gateway into the college and into what’s going into the school,” said Greta McLain, one of the artists. “So that when people come to the college for the first time, they aren’t met with industrial block, they are met with ‘oh, transformation is happening here.’ This space is filled with hope, this space is filled with potential.”
In addition to Brooklyn Park, a mural will also go up at Hennepin Tech’s Eden Prairie campus.
