Common Ground 514 – Crosby Plaza Mural
In this episode of Common Ground, we explore the stories behind a mural on main street that aims to bring revival to the city of Crosby, Minnesota.
A traditional sign painter and muralist shares his creative flow as he describes how he blends old photos into a modern portrayal linking mining history and today’s adventure sports on the Cuyuna Range.
The unique mural in the city of Crosby seeks to springboard the city into a prosperous new future as old mine pits are finding an unexpected acclaim as a national attraction for mountain bikers and deep water divers.
Mike Meyer from Mazeppa, in southern Minnesota was invited to help create the two story high painting that reflects over a hundred years of change on the Cuyuna Range.
A grassroots group called Project Revive was inspired by the Minnesota Design Team to create a brand new plaza on main street to showcase the mural.
