COLUMBUS, Ind. (AP) — A new mural being unveiled this weekend at the kidscommons children's museum in Columbus has a lot of local inspiration.
Artist Andy J. Miller had city youngsters at two recent workshops draw their interpretations of the whimsical characters he's created to live in the fictional land of Nod. He created images from the students' work for the mural being unveiled Saturday.
Miller tells The Republic (http://bit.ly/15HTJgq ) he wanted the children to have some ownership of a piece of public art.
The mural stands about 10 feet high and 90 feet long. Executive Director Amy Kleinart of kidscommons proposed the mural to the 27-year-old Miller a few months ago to enhance a blank wall.
Miller works as a graphic designer when he isn't creating his cartoonesque art.
