Wesley Faculty Engaged in Community Art Project

One corner of Dover is about to get a lot more colorful.

If all goes according to plan, in March a rusting fence at Division and Kirkwood streets with be replaced by a vibrantly-hued mural whose design will be set by those living in the neighborhood.

The work will not only spruce up the city playground there, it will help build a strong sense of community, said Josh Nobiling, an assistant professor of art at Wesley College. Nobiling is shepherding the project along with Maggie Pleasant and Chanda Jackson of NCALL Research and Restoring Central Dover.
