Thunberg Mural Finds A Home
Shunned and even attacked by some in Bismarck, local artist Shane Balkowitsch says he has found a home for his proposed Greta Thunberg mural.KFGO reports the photographer and artist will build his mural in Fargo - specifically in an alley adjacent to the Front Street Taproom on Main Avenue.
The announcement follows a week where Mr. Balkowitsch cancelled his plan to erect the mural in Bismarck following hostility, threats (via social media) and vandalism - egging - on an existing mural in Bismarck.
"I want to thank the citizens of Fargo for their kindness and generosity and grassroots effort in giving a safe haven for this piece of art” Mr. Balkowitsch said. “We must stand up for each other, we must look to each other for support and kindness. I am not from Fargo but the fact that this work is being embraced means the world to me at this time."
