Kimberly mural: Local artist showcasing community with artwork

KIMBERLY – A local artist is leaving her mark around the village and the community is taking notice. (UW-Green Bay student) Hallie Dix, 19, recently finished painting a mural on the Lincoln Street pump house near Roosevelt Park that portrays the community’s name with vibrant colors, geometric shapes and surreal floral designs. It’s not her first piece around town, but it’s getting a lot of attention. “It’s wonderful to watch people get excited about something and rally around the positivity,” said Holly Femal, Kimberly community enrichment director. “The mural is simple and colorful and has brought many people exploring on an evening stroll or bike ride. ”Dix said she wanted the painting to bring more color to the community.“I came up with something really fun to make that I thought would stand out — something that I figured people would want to take pictures in front of,” she said. “I know that’s really popular now with all the murals that go up.”
