Mural Created to Show Flat Rock Homes’ History

Last fall Cynthia Geiger, a representative from Flat Rock Homes, contacted Art@106 to see if any of our artists would like to create a painting about the history of Flat Rock Homes, that would then be reproduced into a mural that would hang on the side of one of their barns.

The request went out, with just one response from Jim Andrews. Jim has a history with Flat Rock Homes having lived in the area and working there in his early years. He teamed up with Tammy Miller and Jan Scagnetti, who have worked together before with scenery and plaques for Bellevue Society for the Arts, each giving ideas, pictures, and sketches. Among the three and with final approval from Flat Rock, Jim painted the final picture which features scenes from the nearly 160-year history of Flat Rock Homes. Tammy worked on the lettering and Jan was the coordinator between Flat Rock and Art@106.

The three, Jim, Tammy, and Jan also visited Loris Printing in Sandusky who will enlarge the painting into a 24×8 foot mural. They were shown the printer and given a brief idea of how the process works and are looking forward to actually seeing it printed soon.

Time is approaching for the mural to be printed. Below is a picture of Jim Andrews and Tammy Miller holding the completed painting which has been delivered to Loris Printing. Flat Rock workers will then mount the mural and the dedication will be at Flat Rock’s TRL Outdoor Therapeutic Center Project. The mural will be unveiled during the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony on May 18, 2024 as a part of The Dick Parks Memorial Race at the Rock.

This stunning mural is not the first time that Andrews made something beautiful for Flat Rock Homes having drawn illustrations of many of the original buildings on campus. Andrews as well as everyone at Flat Rock is looking forward to sharing this original piece with the community. Andrews, Miller, and Scagnetti are members of Art @106: The Bellevue Artists Guild.
