Keep Art Indelible
In 1996, a tradition began at McHenry East High School where a student who took four years of art was allowed to paint a mural on the wall, to leave their mark. Now, 20 years later, that tradition and the existing murals are in jeopardy of being painted over by the current principal, Mr. Eric Blake.
As a community, we have a responsibility to preserve the murals. They are more than just paintings, they are expressions of individuality. They are the history of McHenry East High School.
You wouldn't paint over a Van Gogh. Don't let anyone paint over these.
