Location of Project:
Pump house located on West Rivercenter Blvd. behind the IRS building. This location also referenced as Third and Russell Streets.
Description of mural:
The inspiration for this mural came from the building itself. On the front of the building there is a plaque with a relief of a castle. This symbol, chosen by the core of engineers, depicts strength against flood for the future. The cube like building will become a trompe l’oeil castle. This is accomplished by painting shadows and gradations to achieve the illusion of spatial structure.
The opening on the east side will hold a mural of the suspension bridge painted from an existing historic photo of the 1937 flood. This mural will be done in black, white, and sepia tones.
The chain link fence will be camouflaged by painting it the same color as the building.
The finished project will give the building a fresh, clean look and will be a historic landmark of the 1937 flood of Covington.
