Painters work on giant dairy mural at Wisconsin State Fair
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- While Summerfest is just around the corner, one of the area's other big summer events is busy with preparations as well.
CBS 58 stopped at the home of the Wisconsin State Fair Tuesday, where painters were busy creating a 4,500 square foot mural in one of the cattle barns.
When it's finished, the mural will show scenes from Wisconsin's dairy industry and it will be a part of a new interactive exhibit called "Dairy Lane".
"It just comes to life, it has vibrancy," Wisconsin State Fair's CEO Kathleen O'Leary said. "Just like agriculture, it tells stories and there's so much more than some people know. And the beauty of the Wisconsin State Fair is urban meeting rural, right?"
It's a big mural and it has to be done in time for the fair.
State Fair runs from August 1 through August 11.
