ROCHESTER - A mural featuring a colorful, graphic mountainscape now graces the back side of Waypoint Center on Wallace Street.

The mural's design, created by Mike Durkee, was repurposed from a previous project when Rochester's Department of Economic Development commissioned the RMFA to beautify more than 60 jersey barriers needed for outdoor dining during the pandemic.

Waypoint Senior Program Manager Mandy Lancaster said the experience "was so amazing" and she was left feeling "emotional and totally in awe".

The mural is perfectly positioned to be seen from Columbus Avenue, a major downtown artery. The RMFA supplied the paint and materials and more than a dozen volunteers participated throughout the day.

In addition to a few Rochester residents, volunteers included individuals from Waypoint NH, Stitches Alterations & Needleworks, Rochester Main Street, Infinity Peer Support Cooperative, The Freeman House, Service Credit Union, and Kaslar Insurance.

Painting began at 9 on Thursday and was finished by mid-afternoon. The completion was celebrated with a BBQ, courtesy of Waypoint NH.
