Benton Harbor to receive mural about voting
BENTON HARBOR, Mich. – The American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan, and over 100 non-partisan partner organizations, launched a statewide public art campaign designed to increase voter turnout ahead of the November 3rd election.
This campaign is part of MichiganVoting.org and gets local artists involved to create eight murals across the state.
The murals were to be completed by early October with the first taking place in Benton Harbor.
Jesse Kassel began painting on Monday and plans to be complete with the mural by the weekend.
The murals are designed to increase voter turnout for all elections, not just the current one, so the artists were encouraged to create works that reflected this civic awareness.
