A mural has been installed along the side of the 7th Street bridge in Port Huron. The mural was placed as part of a multi-year Blue Water River Walk Project by the Blue Water Young Professionals (BWYP). The design is by SC4 student artist JR McPhail, who won the chance to design from a competition held in 2018.
President of the BWYP’s, Mallory Michaluk said the goal of the Black River Walk Project was to beautify the high traffic area because many visitors, boaters, and residents travel by the stretch. She added that the BWYP’s were excited to add some color to the Black River that has been lacking color and excitement over the years. Michaluk said another goal was to hear the public’s reaction to the mural on the west side of the bridge in hopes to add another mural or attraction to the east side. The wrap was installed by Wrap by Image Authentics.
