Ro Geseck Paints Civil War Mural
Fellow Chenster and Baum School of Art instructor Ro Geseck has completed a 30ft. mural at The Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum, 4th and Walnut in Allentown, as part of their upcoming Major Civil War Exhibition. Ro says that she was thrilled to be able to paint Grant's horse! Ro has completed several murals in Allentown. This past summer she completed a mural with the kids at Central Elementary. You may have seen her work at Phoebe Floral on Hamilton, or in the kid's bathrooms at the Allentown Art Museum, or the former Federal Grill, just to name a few. Oh, and there's that sports mural on Union Blvd.
The opening of the Civil War Exhibit is this Saturday Sept. 26th, and the show runs through July. There will be re-enactments, artifacts, free soda, and much more. Here's a link for details: http://www.lchs.museum/CivilWarAD.pdf
