If pictures are worth 1,000 words, a wall at River Heights Elementary School has plenty to say. The mural created by a parent and art teacher depicts characters from about 32 different books and 30 illustrators.
Tami Weiss, who is the executive director of the Arts Integration Menomonie- A.I.M., and teaches art at UW-Stout, took about four or five weeks to complete the roughly 60-by-10-foot mural. She completed the project last week.
