Historic Mural at Nebraska Public Library
Link to June 20 Fremont Tribune article, "McClure creates historic mural for Wahoo Public Library".
Excerpt: Artist Rhonda McClure revealed a new chapter of her career.
McClure, a longtime resident of Saunders County, wanted to draw attention to the Wahoo Public Library.
She created a mural depicting the building that housed the former library in the 1920s - City Hall.
The library board had given its stamp of approval.
Board member Rita Lindahl had a postcard of the old building.
"That's all I had to go on," McClure said.
She used a limited palette of just two colors of acrylic paint.
"Going with the same idea as a black and white photo," she said.
The 6-by-10 foot painting in a handmade frame was recently unveiled.
The library began through the efforts of the Wahoo Women's Club.
