New mural celebrates Elkhart County's Well Crafted brand

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. -- A new mural installed at the Elkhart County Visitor Center celebrates the qualities that make it unique. The mural was painted by Goshen artist Josh Cooper.

The mural depicts craft bear, RVs, musical instruments and the county's scenic beauty.

"Elkhart County residents are incredibly talented and believe passionately in hand-crafted quality. We were excited to partner with Josh on a beautiful mural that represents the pride that we have in our community," said Jon Hunsberger, executive director of the Elkhart County Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The state of Indiana created the IN Indiana campaign to promote tourism and community pride. As part of the campaign, the state offered grants to artists to create unique public art that includes the new state identity, the county CVB said.

"Art is a healing journey for me. I love to create using bright, bold, vibrant colors to uplift those around me. I enjoy bringing positive messages through art, while bringing vibrancy to Elkhart County," Cooper said.

You can see the mural at the Elkhart Visitor Center at 3421 Cassopolis Street in Elkhart.
