Synergy Announces Mural Grand Reveal
The Synergy Team is thrilled to announce the Grand Revealing of the LumberKings Mural on May 17th from 4-6 pm at NelsonCorp Field, 67 6th Ave N. The LumberKings mural is a collaboration between CHS graduate and artist Cameron Raab, Synergy, the City of Clinton, and the Clinton LumberKings, who have come together to create a stunning piece of public art for the LumberKings and the citizens of Clinton.
The event will include light snacks and refreshments for those who attend. A limited edition print will be given to attendees to commemorate this great work of public art. During the event, attendees will hear from the artist Cameron as well as local officials.
Synergy is a Clinton Community School District Initiative, whose goal is to find and work on projects in the community that improves the quality of life. The 2022-23 Synergy Class was invited by the City of Clinton to give our opinion on ways to update the exterior of the Stadium. Synergy made a connection with artist Cameron Raab through the connections of facilitator Bill Misiewicz. Cameron was chosen from a pool of candidates that best represented the heart of the mural.
Cameron Raab is a 2007 graduate of Clinton High School and is currently residing in Champaign, IL. The LumberKing Mural, which he has named “Batting 3000,” will be the second mural he has produced. When asked why Cameron was interested in the project he said, “I'm thrilled to be able to add to the growing sense of community and culture in Clinton. It's where I grew up, it's where my family lives, and it's a town that means a lot to me. I went with a futuristic theme because I feel like Clinton's best days are ahead of it. I gravitate towards public art because of its accessibility. Anyone that can walk, run, bike, or drive by gets to enjoy it for free. I love how much character and identity it can add to a community and I hope it brings light and life to anyone that passes by!”
The Synergy Team is honored to have been a part of this collaboration, and are thrilled to see the LumberKings mural come to fruition. Everyone is invited to come to the Grand Revealing.
