Cassopolis MuralĀ 


Cass County dedicated the new Maintenance Building mural in 2007.
The mural is located at 201 State Street, Cassopolis.

The mural project leader was David Dickey, Superintendent of Maintenance. He researched the history of the Maintenance Building and selected Dowagiac muralist Jerry Schlundt. The Maintenance Building was once a new car dealership. It has been painted with cars, trucks, salespeople and customers. There is even a gas pump painted on the back of the building. The murals are intended to use public art to beautify an otherwise plain building in downtown Cassopolis.

They were supported by the Cass County Economic Development Corporation which seeks projects that attract visitors to the area. Investors in the project include the Midwest Energy Cooperative, Wightman Engineering, Indiana Michigan Power, Leonard Kanczuzewski, John Gore, County Commissioners Bob Wagel, Bill Steele and David Taylor, and an anonymous contributor. The painting began in August 2007 and was completed in early October 2007.
