"PUTTING THE RAPIDS BACK INTO THE GRAND RIVER"

Steven Hardock's avatar Steven Hardock

I am posting my completed mural for competition. After spending much time in Grand Rapids, I fell in love with this magnificent city. While there, I found out about the current project concerning the restoration of the Grand Rapids River that runs through town. I can't wait to see it come to life so I accelerated the process and created my own image of what it could look like after doing some intensive research. I hope this gives the people a chance to actually see how wonderful it would be to bring the river back to it's original state and supply some extra activity and resources to the city of Grand Rapids. It is apparent that this project has economic strength however I am equally interested in the recovery of the ecosystem, providing an enhanced biodiversity and establishing sustainability.
