Inspired by a 2018 workshop with “Love Where you Live” author Peter Kageyama, our community began discussing how to bring art to historic downtown Crawfordsville. The idea gained momentum when the Wabash Heartland Innovation Network (WHIN) awarded a grant to the Tippecanoe Arts Federation (TAF) to install murals in the 10 county WHIN region for a project known as “WHIN Walls.” The Montgomery County Community Foundation also pledged additional funding for the installation.
A local planning committee, with the help of TAF, worked to make this idea a reality. In October of 2021 downtown Crawfordsville gained a new mural, by artist Jenna Morello, in the alley between the Montgomery County Community Foundation and Milligan’s Flowers and Gifts at 119 E.
Jenna Morello is a muralist from Brooklyn, New York whose work can be found all over the country. Her vibrant, unique designs have resulted in many different commissions, including a floor of 4 World Trade Center, a component of the rebuilt World Trade Center Complex in New York. In 2015, Jenna appeared on “Street Art Throwdown,” a reality-competition series on the Oxygen Network. While she specializes in murals and street art, Jenna also creates glass and mixed media pieces.
