Graffiti Mural Project
Mother Fool's is pleased to have been granted permission by the city to have
a rotating graffiti wall. Local artist Don Wettach and our alder, Judy Olson,
were instrumental in getting the project up and running. Thanks also to all of
our neighbors and customers who took time to write to the Plan Commission in
support of the project.
The first piece went up September 22, 2001 and was done by Don Wettach. We had
him go ahead with it before our meeting with the Plan Commission in order to
give them and our neighbors a chance to see exactly what we were planning. This
is meant to be rotating or temporary art so the thought was that if it was not
approved, we would simply paint over it.
Our meeting with the city Plan Commission took place on October 5, 2001. The
vote was unanimous!
We celebrated the 5th Birthday of the wall during the 2006 Willy St. Fair.
