Bangor Parade Mural
by Conrad Kaufman
Bangor Parade Mural, painted by Bangor native Conrad Kaufman, is comprised of individual photo images of the town, that, when looked at from a distance, makes a larger picture that depicts a town parade. The mural, the second one commissioned by the council, was recently installed at the day care center on Monroe Street. Painted by Bangor native Conrad Kaufman, the painting is comprised of individual photo images of the town, that, when looked at from a distance, makes a larger picture that depicts a town parade. "I began with a scaled charcoal and chalk sketch of the parade image, which I then divided into the appropriate number of (128) squares," says the Bangor graduate, who now lives in Galesburg. "That gave me the value (shading) structure of each individual square and (with a few written notes on the sketch) the approximate color of each square. Then I referred to the photographs to pick the appropriate photo for each square, changing the season if necessary to give me the general color I was looking for."
