ATTICA, Ind. (AP) — A western Indiana city with a rich history dating back to the early 19th century is getting a big mural toasting its past and its future.
Attica native Carol Desutter designed the mural that will span the entire side of a building in the city about 70 miles northwest of Indianapolis.
Her design depicts the city's Native American history, modern farming and industries and is topped by an image of the rays of the rising sun.
The Journal & Courier reports (http://on.jconline.com/11YOx0Z ) DeSutter's design earned her a $1,000 prize.
Main Street Committee member Lisa Jordan says the mural "encompassed so many things that make up our community," including Potawatomi (paht-ah-WAH'-toh-mee) Indians, farmers, factory workers and the Wabash River. It will be painted with the help of local youth.
