Local teen art group paints mural inspired by beautiful landscape


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A group of teens with the Rochester Art Center is working on beautifying the pool area of a local condominium complex. This particular mural gives a nod to one of the region's most beautiful areas of landscape.

"Tastes Like Paint," as the group calls themselves, penciled the outline of the mural on Tuesday. As of Thursday afternoon, paint has officially been applied.

Rochester Towers Condominiums approached the group's leader, Susannah Magers, about painting a floral/fauna scene on the wall of the facility's currently-under-renovation pool area. The group decided to paint a Lake Pepin-inspired mural, complete with boats and wildlife.

"I feel really happy that i get to be a part of this and I'm excited to contribute to the building and you know, make this room a lot prettier,” said 15-year-old Tastes Like Paint member, Alyssa DeGrand.

Tastes Like Paint will be meeting every Tuesday and Thursday for a little over an hour to work on the mural.

The group told us they plan to have the project complete within the next two months.
