Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Fund (LMEF), in collaboration with Indiana Destination Development Commission (IDDC), Marshall County Community Foundation Vonnegut Fund, and Culver Academies, brought one more piece of public art to the Culver Community.

Debbie Palmer, LMEF President stated “Other communities have angel wings for a photo op. I thought it was more fitting for Culver to have dragonfly wings.” Palmer worked with Bridge Collective, the same organization that brought the fire station and park pavilion murals to Culver, to find an artist to capture the feel of Lake Maxinkuckee.

Because there looked to be potential water issues on the bricks, an alternative solution to a painted mural was needed. Ultimately, four acrylic panels were mounted, allowing for airflow behind the panels.

This project was made possible through grants from IDDC and Marshall County Community Foundation Vonnegut Fund and permission from the building owner, Culver Academies.

Palmer invites everyone to stop by 116 N. Main Street for a photo in front of the dragonfly. Be sure to tag @lakemaxenvironmental.
