Downtown Windsor Has a Neat New Mural – What Is It All About?
If you live or work in Windsor, you've seen a lot of stuff happening along Main Street; now, a new mural has gone up to also brightening things up.
It seems once a city or town gets a mural or two, they just seem to multiply. Next thing you know, Windsor could have a half-dozen pieces of wall art, like this one on the east end of Main.
It's bright, colorful, and full of symbolism, this new mural that artist Chris Bates has created. Chris becomes the first artist to be commissioned by Windsor to create a mural for the town; definitely something for the portfolio.
