➼ IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN the whimsical new mural on the Pleasant Street Parking Garage yet, it’s worth a trip downtown. The mural “reads” from the left, at the corner of Pleasant and Chestnut streets, to the right. “The concept is kids at the corner drawing chalk animals, and across the mural they’re coming to life,” says artist Jennifer Ramsey. A black bear, an Eastern box turtle, a brook trout, and more escape their white-chalk origins and come into luminous color. They’re all critters Ramsey has herself seen on her travels in West Virginia. She complemented the cool-colors street mural with a splash of hot colors just inside the garage. Ramsey’s is one of three works commissioned this spring by Main Street Morgantown. Look for one by “Eddie Spaghetti” Maier on the side of 432 Spruce Street, beside the Morgantown Market Place pavilion, and another by Brian Pickens on 201 Walnut Street. Utility boxes got a sprucing up this spring, too, with six of them newly covered in eye-popping original art in the form of vinyl wraps installed in April. Patricia Colebank, Maggie McDonald, Connie Mae Moeller, Caroline Murphy, Taylor Pate, and Eli Pollard all contributed works for boxes on High and Spruce streets. Keep your eyes open—the city has created a line item for murals in its budget, so we can expect more soon. written by pam kasey Bustin’ Art All Over This spring brought a fresh bloom of murals to downtown.
