Quaker Oats Mural Restoration 2023

In July 2023, artists Jennifer Ross and Phillip Martin-Luckhurst, with the aid of the Shiawassee Art Center and local sponsors, set out to restore the historic Quaker Oats mural in the heart of Owosso, Michigan. It was their mission to bring some vibrancy to downtown Owosso, and spark a new artistic movement throughout the Owosso community.

This video showcases their restoration efforts, their talent, and above all else, their initiative to grow the Owosso community through public art. Because of their efforts, a new community festival – Oat Fest – was created to celebrate their artistic endeavor. Oat Fest will now become an annual Owosso festival that will continue to bring our local community together.

The Shiawassee Arts Center is proud of Jennifer and Phillip’s hard work and is delighted to have taken part in this incredible project. We hope everyone enjoys the video and feels inspired to pick up their brushes and begin creating murals of your own.
