At the Cochrane Ranche historic site two interpretive murals
under tent-like structures
mark the location of tents
pitched by early pioneers.

The murals stood open to weather for 20 years.
Colours faded, text flaked off, graffiti appeared.
The problem was how to rejuvenate the murals and the site
on a limited budget.

Original monochrome images from historic photos
have been repainted in full colour.
Colour helps integrate images with background.
Up-dated copy has been lettered onto murals with more durable sign paint

Structure is repainted for better integration with the landscape.

Exhibit has a
bright new look
without change
in content
or structure.
As always,
visitors are entertained by the process.
