New Mural Coming to Downtown Quincy

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Quincy's downtown area will be getting an artsy new feel.

Monday night aldermen voted to allow the Historic Quincy Business DIstrict to have a mural painted at 115 North 4th Street on the brick wall of the "Anticipation" store.

The artist is Jennifer Bock-Nelson, an art instructor at the Quincy Art Center, and work will begin in the next several weeks.

Executive Director Travis Brown says this was part of their strategic plan - to show off QUincy as an arts community. "Somebody driving through the community and never know that we've got a world class symphony and all of these great arts additions in our community and so we wanted to do something that really drew attention to being an outward arts community, and we really thought doing a mural would do that," he said.

Also at the council meeting, aldermen listened and discussed a hydropower report, and approved the addition of higher wattage street lights near Quincy University.
