Murals Unveiled at Historic Walter H. French School
We joined forces with the REO Town Commercial Association to unveil community painted murals last week at the historic Walter H. French school. The large-scale paint-by-number mural was designed by two Lansing based artists – Joy Baldwin and Eric Schantz. The concept portrays influential artists, musicians, and world leaders such as Oprah Winfrey, Gandhi, Janis Joplin, Dave Chappelle and Lansing’s own Burt Reynolds. The murals now adorn the ground floor of the building south of REO Town.

"Partnering with CAHP for this year's REO Town Art Attack was a huge opportunity for both organizations. The Walter French mural project is the largest impact project we've ever taken on and we're so proud to have our community be a part of it”, said Ryan Wert, RTCA executive director.

Additional recognition should be extended to the project sponsors including – Home Depot, Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, O’Leary Paint, Trumble Group, Michigan Realtors Association, EXIT Realty Home Partners, REACH Studio Art Center, Lansing Board of Water & Light, and the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. The murals are now on display.
