In response to the uncertainty generated by the covid-19 pandemic, Kenosha artist Dale Mellor has reached out to inspire her community to “Stand Strong” by installing a 6 foot daisy, embellished with spring-green leaves and words of hope, on the Kenosha North Pier Lighthouse.
Joining in to spread the encouragement further is the Southport Lighthouse Station and a private residence in Harbor Park facing the water.
“I was inspired to put up the only remaining daisy from my July 2019 Daisy Art Installation, with brand new leaves, as a symbol of Hope and Encouragement for Kenoshans to stand strong through this strange and difficult time.
Working and standing together we can look forward to a new beginning and a brighter future.
I believe that art has the power to touch the hearts and minds of my fellow man and by doing this installation I hope to do that and to help each of us to encourage one another.”
as of 4 /9 /20 I am moving forward to urge a city wide display of daisies - for hope , unity and promotion to keep our businesses in mind so none are lost
