I personally was so impressed of what was going on last year I had to make the trip over and observe the work in progress and briefly chat with the artist, Mr. Sam Welty. As you can see this project required precise layout and was completely done by hand and then painted with very small brushes. The impact on the western wall of # 2 High Street is forever changed. We have witnessed a modern artifact of sorts being born last summer. I felt it was fitting to celebrate its one year birthday of completion this current month because – “history matters”.
