Hurley mural, in Southwest Harbor
Swanville — Artist David Hurley spent much of the winter inside, completing a commissioned mural that has just been installed outside a marina in Southwest Harbor.
The 16-by-6 foot mural was commissioned by Jeff Berzinis, who owns Southwest Boat Marine Service. A variety of vessels that use the marina are depicted in the mural, including a Coast Guard ship; MDI Community Sailing Center boats; lobster boats; Berzinis’ brother's Eastern scallop dragger the Moby Dick; his barge Neptune; and his dog Zeus, who always rode on the barge.
There also are seagulls, a lone rower and a “Reserved Parking” sign on a piling to a lobster fisherman who recently died.
The mural is painted on medium density overlay board and was installed the second weekend of April.
