On September 11th, 2017 the Many Hands Together art mural projects were unveiled to the public at a special open house held that evening to commemorate the tragic events that happened 16 years earlier in New York City, Shanksville, PA, and at the Pentagon.
The 6″ x 6″ tiles, painted by artists of all ages and talents, depict scenes firefighters serve and protect or equipment we use in fire, medical, and rescue scenarios. They were painted at several paint-ins, held at the Old Art Building in Leland and the two Leland Township Fire Stations, and the project was designed to serve as canvases for our two newly rebuilt or renovated fire stations.
The fire stations in Lake Leelanau and Leland both have beautiful murals now – brightening up the administration area with some great color. The murals represents how we fulfill our mission of protecting the welfare of the community when they need us most.
The Many Hands Together project was spearheaded by Sally Meese, Amy Radford, and countless other volunteer artists who encourage collaborative, community, and multi-generational art projects – supported by private donations.
Leland Township Fire & Rescue personnel were humbled by the generous donation from the community. They serve as a great reminder of how well the community loves and respects their firefighters! Thank you to the artists of all ages and talents, the Many Hands Together, the Leelanau Community Cultural Center, and Biggs Construction for all of the hard work making this project a reality!!!
